Lockwood joins the firm from Begbies Traynor where he gained over 13 years’ experience working alongside large corporates, lenders and other stakeholders, advising on a range of restructuring and distressed situations.
In his new role, he will work with the restructuring advisory team to support regional businesses through unprecedented economic times.
The appointment reflects the firm’s continued commitment to invest in key talent and expertise to drive further growth, following the partner appointments of technology risk specialist Paul O’Leary and corporate tax professional Thomas Dews earlier in the year.
He said: “The restructuring advisory team at RSM is highly regarded in the market and I’m looking forward to working with the growing team to help businesses to navigate what is likely to be a difficult time for many following the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Mike Thornton, office managing partner in Leeds, RSM, added: ‘We are delighted to welcome Lee to further strengthen our Restructuring Advisory team in the Leeds office.
“Lee joins us at the perfect time to help support clients as we come out of lockdown. This appointment also comes on the back of two recent partner hires showing our commitment to Leeds and our position at the forefront of the middle market in Yorkshire.”
