Formerly a Senior Legal Counsel in ​NatWest ​Group's Restructuring Legal team, Michael Lynch is a ​Restructuring and Insolvency specialist with a focus on insolvency litigation, acting for parties subject to complex and high-value disputes, often involving multiple international jurisdictions. 

Known for his commercial and no-nonsense approach, he brings focused insight into positions involving financial​ distress and insolvency​, particularly from a lender perspective, providing a multi-faceted understanding of business failure and recovery strategies.

Simon Elcock, Partner and Head of DMH Stallard’s Dispute Resolution Department, said:

“We are absolutely delighted that Michael is joining our Restructuring and Insolvency team.

He brings a great depth of experience to our practice and will play an integral role in the firm’s continued growth in the City and in this practice area.

Having previously acted for corporates, shareholders, insolvency practitioners, directors and individuals across a very broad range of complex insolvency-related issues and disputes, Michael is highly regarded across the sector for his outstanding commercial insight and judgement.”

Michael is the sixth Partner hire of 2022 at DMH Stallard and follows a record number of internal promotions at the firm during the summer.

Michael said:

“DMH Stallard​'s well-established position alongside its continued growth is an exciting prospect.  ​I am very much looking forward to developing the firm's impressive client base, working alongside my new colleagues and continuing to build the firm’s ​dynamic Restructuring and Insolvency practice.”
