Would a personal bankruptcy impact my ability to get hired or make partner at a V20 firm?

Sadly yes as it is viewed as an inability to manage finances (and not a personal misfortune of not being born into a wealthy family). Considering making a proposal to your creditors as opposed to outright bankruptcy. Speak to a banko lawyer on your viable options


Do they credit check you before a hiring for a job or is it on your law society record as a mark?

Well yeah, but do they look for that or do you have to self disclose? I used to work in HR and we didn’t verify everyone’s degrees with the college - that would be a waste of time with 99% of applicants.
