Womble Bond Dickinson has bolstered its restructuring capability with the appointment of a new industry expert.

Victoria Procter (pictured) has joined Womble Bond Dickinson’s restructuring team as a legal director, working in the firm’s Leeds office.

Procter joins the team after spending over 12 years at Eversheds, specialising in all non-contentious aspects of restructuring work for banks, accountants, corporate clients and other stakeholders, including distressed lending, restructuring and corporate insolvency.

The new legal director has significant experience in the finance and corporate sectors and, more recently, has dealt with failed domestic energy suppliers, which complements Womble Bond Dickinson’s credentials in this sector.

Procter is well connected in the local and national restructuring markets with insolvency practitioners, lenders and other key stakeholders. Her recruitment strengthens the Womble Bond Dickinson restructuring team on both a local and national basis and will help the team continue to win mandates on high-profile matters.

Commenting on her appointment, Procter said: “I am delighted to join the Womble Bond Dickinson restructuring team in Leeds. My varied experience will enable me to play an instrumental role within the team, supporting the firm’s existing excellent client base and their wider plans for growth in the restructuring market.”

Andy Stirk, national head of restructuring at Womble Bond Dickinson, commented, “Victoria is an exceptionally talented restructuring lawyer and well regarded by clients and peers in the market. Victoria’s appointment strengthens the expertise and service we provide to our clients, and we are delighted to welcome her to the team.”
