We are pleased to announce the new appointment of insolvency expert Andrew Cawkwell as a partner to lead the firmâ€™s restructuring and insolvency team.
Highly regarded in the marketplace, Andrew will lead the insolvency team at Muckle LLP, working integrally with the corporate finance and banking teams to help strengthen the specialist support available to businesses in financial difficulties.
