Aman Sehgal, who has more than 10 years’ experience in corporate and personal insolvency, has joined the region’s largest banking and restructuring team at leading North East law firm for businesses, Muckle LLP.
Aman has previously advised Insolvency Practitioners on a range of complex public interest litigation cases and is now bringing his specialist expertise to Muckle and its clients.
Aman will further strengthen Muckle LLP’s restructuring capability and his focus is to build up the contentious work of the insolvency practice.
Aman firmly believes his professional and personal values are aligned to those of Muckle, which prides itself on a down to earth, customer service led approach to providing legal services.
He said: “I can identify with Muckle. It stands out from other law firms for having good values, a strong sense of community and a friendly culture. I met Jason Wainwright, Muckle’s managing partner, at an event last year and it was refreshing to meet a senior partner who had such a dynamic vision for what he was trying to build at his firm.
“I was born and brought up in the North East and I always wanted to remain here. When I decided to move on from my previous role, I carefully considered my next step and quite early on I knew Muckle was the right choice for me. It’s important to feel engaged with the business you work for and because Muckle’s focus is within the region you instantly feel that engagement.”
Aman lives with his wife and five-year-old twins in Ponteland, Northumberland. He graduated from Northumbria University’s LPC course in 2002 and has progressed his career within the region over the last 14 years.
Andrew Cawkwell, Partner in the Banking and Restructuring team, said: “Aman has exactly the right values and approach that is well suited to Muckle and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.
“There is no doubt that Aman’s extensive insolvency investigation skills will add additional strength and depth to our offer for clients here in the North East across the UK.”
