Restructuring & Forensics

In Restructuring & Forensics we focus on supporting our clients through the Protect and Recover stages of the business cycle. We combine restructuring services such as financial restructuring, liability restructuring and corporate simplification with Digital and Forensic Investigations and Financial Crime teams. We support clients in stress or distress situations, seeking to support them to respond, restructure and transform, as well as prepare for, respond to and emerge stronger from a wide range of business risks and issues.. We could be involved in any one, or all of these types of engagements.


Who We Are

PwC works with some of the largest UK and international organisations. Our clients are collecting and using more data than ever before and the use of technology plays an integral role in driving their business and serving their customers. The Forensics Legal Technology team designs, builds and delivers Legal technology solutions using a number of cutting edge tools to improve our client’s business and solve commercial challenges.


You will work alongside a fast growing team that works with some of the UK’s top tier institutions and multinationals. You will be working on a range of projects related to Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM), Contract Analysis & Review, Contract Repapering & Outreach, as well as some aspects of Legal Transformation. You will be required to build strong client relationships, understand the client requirements, be involved in problem solving and manage the delivery of a legal technology solution.


We operate in an environment where speed of response is often critical to our clients which means you will be continuously innovating and drawing on the very latest technologies and methodologies. Our engagements frequently involve us working in cross-border teams with UK and International clients and across other parts of our wider business – opportunities for international travel are subject to government advice/guidelines.


What You’ll Do

As a Manager in the team you’ll work on a wide range of engagements, utilising your technical skills and non-technical skills to support clients to leverage technology in their legal functions.

This Could Include

  • Configuration, data/clause extraction, refining machine learning algorithms and analysis using contract digitisation tools;
  • Building and running workflows to support contract preparation, negotiation and execution;
  • Requirements gathering, workshop facilitation, building workflows and user testing for Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) implementations; and;
  • Building data visualisation and reporting for clients.

You will play a key role in translating business needs into technical solutions and requirements and day to day responsibility on client projects, liaising with stakeholders and ensuring the work is being progressed to time and budget. As a Manager, you will need to provide coaching and guidance to your team as well as show leadership in internal initiatives, risk processes and operational roles.


As we look to harness artificial intelligence, expert systems, robotics and machine learning to assist our clients, you will have the opportunity to get involved in some innovative projects where we utilise these technologies to solve real life issues. By assessing their current technology stack and exploring the ever changing impact of regulations on contract portfolios, you will help answer client questions such as “Where are the gaps and what existing processes can be improved?”, “How can technology be utilised more effectively to deliver more value to our clients?” and “How can we best integrate different technologies into one solution?”

We’ll also encourage you to attend training led by our technology partners to develop your technical knowledge to enable you to upskill ypurself and your team to deliver projects using new technology.
