Restructuring partner joins Tyr Law

Leeds-based commercial law firm Tyr Law has recruited partner Ashley Jaques.

Jaques (pictured) has 17 years of experience in business restructuring and insolvency, and joins from DWF to lead the restructuring team at Tyr.

The law firm’s new partner specialises in property-based insolvencies and receiverships, together with director advisory and transactional matters. 

In addition, Jaques has significant experience acting on behalf of insolvency practitioners, financial institutions, companies, directors, property agents and turnaround professionals from across the country on all aspects of corporate recovery and restructuring work.

Jaques is the 10th partner at Tyr, which has gone through a sustained period of growth over recent years.

Managing partner Dean Jowett said: “Ashley is a fantastic recruit. His arrival brings the final key specialism to our full service offering. Ashley has a wealth of experience in the sector and a great reputation in the market.”

“We have consistently recruited lawyers of the highest calibre, and this has paid dividends, both in terms of the exceptional service we can offer across specialisms to our clients and also our ability to attract top quality work and clients locally, nationally and internationally.”

Jaques added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for me to build a restructuring practice in a firm that is already so highly regarded in the market. I am looking forward to meeting the firm’s existing clients and working with my contacts to build and develop relationships to help the firm to continue its phenomenal growth.”
