Speaking after the announcement, Paul Jarvis, Dentons’ Chief Executive for the UK and Middle East (UKME), added, “I am thrilled to welcome Sue back to Dentons. Restructuring & Insolvency is a core part of our 5-year strategy and I am delighted to have Sue onboard.” 

Dentons partner Louisa Caswell, who leads the Disputes division in the UK, said, “This year, forecasters are predicting the highest levels of restructurings and insolvencies since the 2008/09 crash. Sue’s expertise as well as her reputation as an exceptional Restructuring & Insolvency lawyer will help us to further enhance our offering to clients who may be facing a difficult, complex road ahead.”
