Tal Goldsmith joins Stephenson Harwood as partner


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has strengthened its restructuring and insolvency (R&I) practice with the arrival of partner Tal Goldsmith, who will be based in its London office.

Goldsmith’s practice is principally focussed on contentious insolvency and asset recovery work, often involving fraud, but it also includes a number of significant board advisory and directors' duties engagements. Early in her career she spent time working in industry for a market leading asset recovery team which gives her a unique understanding of how such practices operate and enables her to better meet clients’ requirements. She joins the firm from Wedlake Bell, where she was a partner.

"The severe economic difficulties brought by Brexit and COVID-19 have triggered a rise in insolvency and restructuring activity," said Julian Cahn, Stephenson Harwood’s head of restructuring and insolvency. "Tal is well known and respected in the market. We are therefore delighted that she is joining us to significantly enhance what is already our market leading contentious insolvency and asset recovery practice.”

Stephenson Harwood's global R&I practice is a multi-jurisdictional team of lawyers, who advise a wide array of stakeholders on all issues arising in connection with financial distress. The team's work covers all sectors, and encompasses domestic and international debt restructurings, schemes of arrangement, company voluntary arrangements, administrations (including pre-packs), receiverships, liquidations, personal bankruptcy, insolvency litigation and investigations, fraud and asset recovery, refinancings, workouts and turnaround strategies, debt for equity swaps, distressed M&A, distressed investing and loan to own strategies.
