Insolvency specialist returns to the UK’s leading independent corporate recovery and restructuring firm after 25 years
Buchler Phillips, the UK’s leading independent corporate recovery, turnaround and restructuring firm, has appointed Jo Milner as a Partner.
Jo returns to the firm after a break of 25 years. After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Grant Thornton, she worked with Buchler Phillips from 1991 to 1995. Since then she has gained valuable experience holding senior positions in leading firms including PwC and Smith & Williamson, as well as nine years as a Partner with Cork Gully. She has a degree in East European History from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London.
Jo specializes in both corporate and personal insolvency and has a particular interest in the administration of insolvent Credit Unions. She works closely with both the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, and has returned funds in excess of £33 million to some 13,500 Credit Union members. Jo has also dealt with the administration and subsequent liquidation of failed law firms as well as a number of retail and construction companies.
Welcoming Jo back to Buchler Phillips, the firm’s co-founder and Chairman, David Buchler, said:
“It’s great to have Jo back with us as a Partner, completing the circle of her distinguished career path. She is one of the profession’s leading practitioners and brings highly relevant experience and expertise to our assignments. As the UK plans its post-Covid return to work and government aid winds down, we are not surprised to see significant demand for our services, whether in business restructuring and turnaround, or administrations and insolvency. We look forward to working with Jo to support our clients as they work hard to build back better.”
