Clarion appoints another senior associate to its expanding Corporate Recovery team

Clarion’s Corporate Recovery and Insolvency practice is seeing further growth with the appointment of Ashley Armitage as a senior associate.

Over the past eight years, Ashley has worked at international law firms in both London and Leeds, advising on a number of high profile insolvencies. Specialising in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious insolvency, she also provides advice on corporate restructuring. Ashley has acted for office holders, company officers, creditors and potential buyers regarding companies in distress and insolvency procedures. She also works on investigations relating to potential claims by office holders against company officers and third parties, and any subsequent litigation, as well as advising on claims by creditors.

Ashley has advised clients on insolvencies in a number of sectors, including retail, sports, hospitality, leisure and construction. She has also attained the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency enabling her to advise clients on points which are not solely ‘legal’, but also on practical aspects of matters.

Ashley comments: “With an impressive track record of handling high profile national cases and having been recognised in the latest Legal 500 Awards, there’s no doubt that Clarion’s corporate recovery team is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable in the North.

“I am really excited to be working alongside such expert colleagues who, like me, pride themselves on their commercial and pragmatic approach, and a commitment to delivering the best service possible to clients.”

Ryan Millmore, joint managing partner and head of Clarion’s Corporate Recovery and Insolvency team, said: “With demand for our services in both contentious and non-contentious insolvency continuing to grow, it’s vital that we carry on investing in the team in order to ensure we are able to maintain the swift response and technical expertise for which we are renowned.

“As we build on a very successful 2018, we are bringing on board more talented young lawyers and Ashley is a welcome addition to the team.”
