Peter Phillips

Peter’s professional career as an Insolvency Practitioner has spanned over 40 years. Before co-founding Buchler Phillips in 1988, he was UK Head of Corporate Recovery at Arthur Andersen. His last position was as a Director of Koll Buchler Phillips until 2005.

Peter is renowned for providing strategic recovery solutions to corporates and individuals alike, many of his assignments being referred by international legal firms, major banks and financial institutions. He was President of the Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) in 1988/89 and has been Director of the Joint Insolvency Monitoring Unit (JIMU).

Peter has held many senior voluntary positions in the community, acting as a Magistrate in London for 35 Years, Chairman of the Hampstead Theatre during its rebuilding and practising as an accredited Relationship Counsellor for Relate. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he is also a member of The Magic Circle.

Peter was awarded an OBE in 2004 for services to the Insolvency Profession and is the Author of Life after Debt (published 2010).
