Charles Russell Speechlys strengthens its insolvency practice with promotion of Jason Freedman to Partner
Charles Russell Speechlys is further strengthening its Corporate Restructuring and Insolvency Group with the promotion of Jason Freedman to Partner.
Jason has extensive experience acting for insolvency practitioners on both contentious and non-contentious work, with a particular focus on complex and large-scale fraud investigations and asset recovery actions. On the non-contentious side, he regularly advises administrators on the sale of assets and ROT claims.
Given his work on contingent matters, Jason has also built a litigation funding practice and has developed bespoke funding agreements for clients of the firm.
James Hyne, Head of Charles Russell Speechlys’ Corporate Restructuring and Insolvency Group said:
“Jason’s promotion demonstrates the firm’s commitment to our contentious offering and the work the restructuring and insolvency team does for insolvency practitioners forms an integral part of this strategy. His new role provide him with the opportunity to further develop the firm’s litigation funding services and will assist our team’s growth going forward.”
Jason Freedman said:
“I am delighted to have been promoted to Partner at the firm and I look forward to working with the rest of the team to build upon our already strong reputation within the market.”
Jason’s promotion takes effect from Friday 1 November.
