Lawyer reveals divorcing couples’ biggest fears in 2024
Another high-profile appointment in our Leeds insolvency division
Natalie joins LCF Law from Knights and has worked in insolvency in Leeds for more than 22 years, dealing with all types of business recovery scenarios, as well as handling large scale investigations in bankruptcy and liquidation estates.
She now predominantly specialises in contentious insolvencies and deceased insolvent estates, which often involves investigating where money and assets are, before seeking to recover them on behalf of financial institutions, insolvency practitioners and individuals.
She will work alongside the insolvency division’s existing partners, comprising of Jo Barnes and Wayne Parker, as well as its additional four lawyers in the team who handle all types of corporate and personal insolvency cases.
The team also specialises in company turnarounds, corporate restructures, administrations, individual voluntary arrangements (IVA’s), company voluntary arrangements (CVA’s), winding up petitions and statutory demands. Clients typically include financial institutions, turnaround professionals, administrators, liquidators and receivers, as well as companies, individuals and trustees facing financial difficulties.
Natalie said: “I’ve known Jo professionally for more than 20 years and although we’ve never worked for the same firm before, our paths have crossed many times. It’s always apparent that we have a similar way of working and both Jo and Wayne are also renowned for offering solid, no nonsense commercial advice, which is something I pride myself on, so there’s no doubt we will complement each other.
“Plus, LCF Law has a reputation for having strong core values and being a quality employer, which all combined to make this an appealing career move for me.”
LCF Law’s head of insolvency, Jo Barnes, added: “Natalie is very well-known in the world of insolvency and adds significant experience and expertise to our team. Her appointment also comes at a time of very high demand for our services due to our strong track record for securing victories in several landmark legal cases, as well as businesses being forced to navigate the current challenges facing certain areas of the economy.
“Natalie is therefore a very welcome addition to our team and there’s no doubt that her track-record in solving her clients’ financial problems will further strengthen the level of service and expertise that we are renowned for.”
