Hill Dickinson has boosted its restructuring team with the lateral hire of an Insolvency and Restructuring Partner.

Will Jones joins the company from Knights, which he joined as part of the firm’s acquisition of Turner Parkinson. In his new role he will operate out of Manchester with a national remit and client base.

Jones is known for providing support to insolvency practitioners and funders in the structuring, handling and implementation of corporate insolvency processes. He has significant experience in advising directors on their duties when their companies are in distress.

Paul Spence, Head of the firm’s insolvency and restructuring operation, said “Adding additional partner-level capacity to the team is very much in line with our original strategic planning for 2020 and I am delighted that Will has joined us.”

“At the start of 2020, we could never have foreseen that the events of this year would affect businesses and all aspects of the global economy so profoundly.”

“Having Will on the team gives us valuable additional breadth and capacity at exactly the time when our clients need us most.”
