New partner appointment at expanding MD Law

Insolvency specialist Carl Jones has been promoted to partner at Sheffield firm MD Law.

Jones graduated in law from the University of Cambridge in 2010 and trained at the Sheffield office of international law firm, DLA Piper. He qualified as a solicitor in 2013 and joined MD Law founder Matthew Dixon when he launched the niche practice in May 2015.

The new partner specialises in acting for insolvency practitioners and other corporate and individuals in litigation matters and is qualified to represent clients in civil matters in all courts as a solicitor-advocate.

He also handles a range of litigation and insolvency work in the property sector, including sales of residential and commercial properties by insolvency practitioners and forced sales by court order.Jones has gained significant experience in other transactional work, including pre-pack sales and advice on security documentation.

In his spare time, he is one of the country’s select group referees for futsal—the FIFA approved version of 5-a-side—and has represented The FA at the European University Games Futsal Championships, as well as officiating at several international matches.

MD Law, which was formed four years ago, specialises in business recovery, insolvency, dispute resolution and commercial litigation. It acts for and advises insolvency professionals, businesses and individuals across the country.

Dixon, partner and founder of MD Law, said: “We are delighted to promote Carl to a partner in the practice.”

“He has helped us expand the range of expertise we provide and his proactive case management of contentious claims for a number of insolvency practitioner clients has led to an increase in the number of clients and instructions we have received and built on over the last four and-a-half years.”

MD Law has continued its strategic growth over the last 12 months, with a move to larger offices in Sheffield and three new appointments.

Jones added: “I’m delighted to become a partner within MD Law and I’m really looking forward to being part of the continued growth of the firm.”
