We are delighted to welcome Tom Guthrie to BRI. Tom is a qualified chartered certified accountant and a licensed insolvency practitioner. He will be based in the firm's Milton Keynes office.
Tom has over 10 years experience and has worked with clients in a wide variety of industries and sectors, including construction, printing, retail, automotive, manufacturing and intellectual property. He has assisted many distressed companies, helping them to find the most appropriate solution in their individual circumstances. Through the constructive use of informal and formal insolvency procedures, Tom is able to implement rescue plans for the benefit of the whole range of stakeholders impacted by the threat of insolvency.
Tom commented “when acting for management, creditors and other stakeholders, I find my practical and open approach is critical for resolving financial problems. I strive to avoid using formal insolvency procedures where possible as this will generally lead to a better outcome for all parties”.
He has a particular interest in dealing with intellectual property (such as patents, trademarks, copyright, design rights, know-how, etc.) in insolvency situations. The threat of insolvency can have devastating consequences on the value associated with a company's intellectual property and his expertise in this area means he is particularly able to focus on preserving the value of the company's intangible assets.
Peter Windatt, Director of BRI commented “Tom is an excellent addition to BRI and his experience will add even more strength to both BRI and the Milton Keynes team. The Milton Keynes office is currently on the move within the Woodlands Business Park and Tom's arrival is the kick-start needed for the re-launch of BRI's Milton Keynes presence following a period of change”
If you would like to meet with Tom or seek his guidance and assistance in relation to any insolvency matters, then please contact him on 01908 576853.
