Keystone Law has announced that established insolvency lawyer Stephen Young has joined the firm’s Restructuring & Insolvency team having previously been a Partner at Knights Professional Services.

Stephen, who is a member of the Insolvency Lawyers Association and R3 brings to the firm a wealth of experience in dealing with and advising on all aspects of corporate and personal insolvency issues, including litigious and transactional matters. Stephen predominantly acts for insolvency officeholders, as well as others affected by insolvency, including businesses facing financial difficulty, directors, lenders and creditors.

Part of Stephen’s work incorporates a cross-border element and he has established track record of tracing, securing and recovering assets from countries other than the UK including Spain, Switzerland, Bulgaria, South Africa and the USA.

“Stephen is a talented and experienced restructuring lawyer, with proven expertise including drafting and negotiating the sale of businesses and assets from Insolvency Officeholders”, commented James Knight Keystone’s founder and Managing Partner. “As we look to strengthen our skillset in this area, his experience will have a significant impact on the support and service we can offer clients.”

Stephen continued:

“I am delighted to be joining an innovative and impressive full service firm such as Keystone Law that genuinely has a modern approach to client service delivery. The fact that Keystone Law is so well known means that my practice, both within the South West and nationally, will inevitably grow whilst I also look forward to assisting and advising existing clients of the firm.

More often than not, dealing with Insolvency requires those involved to be both commercial and pragmatic. I’m therefore excited that the flexibility, autonomy and culture of Keystone Law will enable me to advise clients in a way that meets these needs”.
