Sintons solicitors in Newcastle have recruited a new senior insolvency and commercial litigation specialist.
Paul Monaghan has been named as the new head of corporate recovery and insolvency. He is joining the legal team from another North-East law firm.
He has a great deal of experience working in the fields of corporate recovery and insolvency and high value commercial litigation matters. He has acted for large private sector organisations as well as individuals throughout the UK. He has a special interest in sports law.
He will lead a team at Sintons who will focus on enhancing the firm’s reputation as corporate insolvency specialists.
