Hammonds promotes insolvency duo

Hammonds has promoted two partners in its business ­recovery and insolvency team.

They are London-based insolvency specialist Paul Muscutt, who focuses on banking and asset-based lending sectors and recently returned from a nine-month ­secondment at Barclays Bank, and Birmingham-based Daniel French.

French’s practice covers non-contentious insolvency and business restructuring advice to institutional lenders and major corporates.

Hammonds managing partner Peter Crossley said: “They’re both exceptionally talented lawyers and will play a key role in the ongoing success of our clients.”
