Michelle Shean, Partner, Restructuring and Insolvency

Michelle Shean, Partner, Restructuring and Insolvency, Fieldfisher

I am a partner in the corporate department specialising in non-contentious insolvency and business restructuring and turnaround. I have almost 20 years' experience in acting for lenders and borrowers in distressed lending situations, insolvency practitioners and directors of troubled companies. 

I have particular experience in the retail sector, and prior to joining the firm advised the administrators of both Kwik Save Group and Antler Luggage, and also the administrators of  UK Housing Alliance (North West ) Limited in a recent case clarifying the law on administration expenses.  

I am also a member of the R3 regional committee and speak regularly at specialist conferences. I also provide training to clients by way of presentations and technical briefings.

I have been listed in the Legal 500 for my "technical strong and robust advice" and in Chambers UK Legal Guide as a ranked lawyer and someone with a "strong can-do attitude who is good at making deals move forward".
