BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency

We are an independent company of insolvency practitioners committed to finding the right solutions for businesses and individuals in financial difficulty


At BRI, we specialise in the field of insolvency and believe that we offer sound, practical advice and solutions. Whilst we are not the only providers of insolvency services, we still believe that we are the best.

BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency was established in 1982 when a firm of Chartered Accountants set up an insolvency department under the wing of one of its founding directors. In 2001, the department was subject to a management buy-out by the current directors. Since then BRI has grown, thanks in part to its sound principles, which continue to mark it out from the crowd.

BRI pride themselves on offering business recovery and insolvency services to both businesses and individuals in financial difficulty. This is given regardless of the resulting fee for the firm - initial interviews are always free of charge and without obligation.

BRI operates from offices in Northampton, Banbury, Coventry, Hitchin, Milton Keynes and Spalding. Each office is the responsibility of one or more of the management team and includes an insolvency practitioner and accountant.

BRI's highly qualified team is friendly and approachable and always have clients' interests at heart so you will always receive the right recommendation, irrespective of the fee outcome for ourselves. Furthermore, if the appropriate way out of your problems doesn't include using our expertise, we will recommend that way forward.

Whatever the issues confronting you, the chances are that we will have seen something similar before. The management team has more than 120 years business recovery and insolvency experience from within the top four big firms, the Insolvency Service, as lecturers, examiners and otherwise. The BRI team have a range of skills and knowledge that enables us to focus on the differing needs of our clients and react quickly to changes in a fast moving world.

At BRI, we aim to keep our costs competitive. Whilst everyone is focused on the headline charge out rates for principals in the business, our average charge out rate on liquidations is well below the big firms' and most sole practitioner rivals.

We remain committed to giving clients the right advice, first time and every time. By offering you the best advice and support we hope that you will help to spread the word, using our preferred and most successful form of marketing, word of mouth.

If you still want/need an MVL then I can recommend a firm for this. The insolvency world is a murky one: this firm is both innovative (you’ll probably find them suggesting the alternatives I’ve outlined above before they do you an MVL and claim their charges) and honest.

We get no commission or similar from the firm: we recommend them because of what we’ve seen them do for our clients.”

Following a discussion with their client we are hopeful that we’ve found a way for them to achieve their aims without the need for our services – another feather in our cap and evidence that we’ll always give the right advice, first time, every time – whatever the fee outcome for ourselves.

Company director, Northampton,

I didn’t realise how much I needed BRI’s help. A casual inquiry led to them doing a totally invaluable piece of work for me with no drama, no fuss and complete peace of mind. Their professionalism, pragmatism and knowledge gave me total confidence. I whole-heartedly recommend BRI.

Company Director, Milton Keynes,

You were very helpful in providing impartial and professional advice with my interest at heart at all times. I am extremely grateful for your kind assistance and cannot thank you enough

Client, Hitchin,
