Jason Byrne, partner in the financial services disputes and investigations team.
Ainslie Benzie, legal director with vast experience in advising lenders, insolvency practitioners, corporates and their directors on all aspects of restructuring, turnaround and insolvency.
Andrew Lockerbie, partner in the banking and restructuring team

The speakers will share their views on what’s coming down the track, look back on what they learned during past economic cycles and give an insight into a lawyer’s role at times of financial distress.

They will also reflect on their career journeys to date and give advice to students hoping to enter the legal profession.

After a panel discussion there will be virtual networking with the speakers, TLT trainees and members of the firm’s graduate recruitment team.
