Buchler Phillips, a leading independent corporate recovery, turnaround and restructuring firm, has appointed Jo Milner as its latest partner in the business.
Milner has returned to the firm after a 25-year break. She previously worked with Buchler Phillips from 1991 to 1995, after qualifying as a chartered accountant with Grant Thornton.
Since leaving, the firm said she has gained “valuable” experience holding senior positions in such firms as PwC and Smith and Williamson. She also spent nine years as a partner with Cork Gully.
Milner specialises in both corporate and personal insolvency and has a particular interest in the administration of insolvent Credit Unions.
She also works closely with the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, and has returned funds in excess of £33m to around 13,500 Credit Union members.
In addition, Milner has also dealt with the administration and subsequent liquidation of failed law firms as well as a number of retail and construction companies.
Buchler Phillips’ 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.”
