Laurence Weeks

Eastern Region Rep

" I hope to use my experience in insolvency to make a useful contribution to R3’s Council and to support the interests of R3 Eastern members in these interesting times."

Laurence has worked in insolvency for more than 15 years. After 10 years at City law firm Ashurst, he moved to Cambridge firm, Taylor Vinters becoming a partner in 2007. He joined Birketts in 2012. He is a partner in the dispute resolution team and heads up the firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency Team. 

Throughout his career he has specialised in contentious insolvency work. Whilst a lawyer, he understands the challenges, responsibilities and pressures of IPs having worked closely with them over the years.

From 2008 to 2011 Laurence was Chairman of the R3 Eastern Region Committee. During this time, he saw R3 grow as a powerful voice which now very much has the ear of the quality media and political figures.

His career has given him a wide experience of insolvency; from some of the largest corporate insolvencies to small personal insolvencies.
