Rosenblatt Solicitors has launched a 15-lawyer restructuring and recovery group in response to the economic crisis.
Funds and financial services partner Nigel Frudd is leading the initiative, which will see litigation partners Anthony Field and Tania MacLeod rebadged along with corporate partner Wayne O'Neill and employment partner Andrea London.
