Commercial law firm Walker Morris has announced the appointment of a new director in its Restructuring & Insolvency Group.
Gawain Moore has returned to Walker Morris from London-based law practise Herbert Smith Freehills, where he built a reputation as a specialist in restructuring and insolvency.
Moore has worked in a variety of sectors, gaining experience in complex cross-border insolvencies, the use of voluntary arrangements and schemes of arrangement as a restructuring tool, and insolvent groups with significant pension deficits.
Philip Mudd, partner at Walker Morris, said: “Despite signs of recovery in the economy, clearly there are still significant structural issues that have to be overcome and overall levels of debt remain high.
“We are delighted that Gawain has re-joined Walker Morris. His skill set and experience complement the substantial expertise and strength in depth that we have in this practice area.”
Moore said: “It’s a great time to be joining Walker Morris. I am really pleased to be re-joining a firm that has established itself as a leading advisor in the restructuring and insolvency area, and has a strong reputation for delivering a top quality service to clients.”
