Hill Dickinson boosts Restructuring team with hire of consultant lawyer Mark Lund

Mark Lund

Hill Dickinson has added capacity to its Restructuring team with the appointment of recovery and insolvency specialist, Mark Lund.

His appointment comes ahead of a predicted surge in client enquires for legal advice related to businesses in distress, or at risk, as a result of the ongoing Covid pandemic.

Mark Lund will act as a consultant lawyer, based in the firm’s Manchester office, joining head of restructuring Paul Spence and fellow partner Will Jones in serving a wide client base nationally.

Welcoming Mark to the firm, Paul Spence commented: “The corporate landscape has undergone seismic change over the past 16 months, meaning that many businesses are having to reassess their strategies to generate and preserve cash as they look to  the future. We can help with that. To have Mark join the team now, when the country is finally about to reopen fully, gives us significant added capacity and expertise to assist clients and stakeholders in protecting what they have often spent many years building up. We’re delighted to have him on board.”

Mark Lund joins Hill Dickinson from Knights and, prior to that, was head of the insolvency team at Turner Parkinson, amassing over 30 years’ experience as a highly regarded insolvency lawyer in private practice. He specialises in providing restructuring advice and support to insolvency practitioners, businesses and their stakeholders.

He is also a Fellow of the Association of Business Recovery Professionals, an associate member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and is dual-qualified as both an insolvency practitioner and as a solicitor.

Will Jones, who joined Hill Dickinson as an insolvency partner from Knights in November 2020, said: “I’m very much looking forward to working with Mark again as we continue to grow our Restructuring practice in line with our strategic plans.”

Mark Lund added: “I’m excited to be joining Hill Dickinson’s Restructuring team at a time when many of our corporate clients need increased access to timely advice and guidance. It’s undoubtedly been a challenging time to be in business and our job is to help clients chart a new path towards stability and recovery.”

Hill Dickinson’s Restructuring team acts for a substantial number of insolvency practitioners nationally and locally on a broad range of mandates including transactional and contentious assignments, and complex real estate work outs.

The firm was recognised as Insolvency Law Firm of the Year at the 2019 Turnaround Restructuring and Insolvency (TRI) awards.
