Promotion at Birmingham office of expanding insolvency & restructuring practice sees Gareth Wilcox made Partner
As part of its UK strategy, Opus opened a new office in Birmingham in 2017 to grow its footprint in the Midlands. Having enjoyed steady growth since, and to continue to meet the demands in the region, Gareth has been promoted to a Partner at Opus.
Gareth has been with Opus since 2016, initially heading up the solvent restructuring team. Whilst continuing to head up the solvent restructuring team, Gareth became a Director in 2017 and returned to his Birmingham roots to establish the new office before being promoted to Partner this year. A Licenced Insolvency Practitioner, Gareth’s career spans over 10 years in the insolvency and restructuring market, and his return to Birmingham has been well received.
Speaking about the promotion, Tim Dolder, Partner at Opus said, “Gareth has been an instrumental part of the management team at Opus. Our first full year in Birmingham has been extremely positive, thanks to Gareth’s energy and commitment. We are committed to the Midlands and establishing a dedicated Partner for the region further demonstrates this.”
With the loom of uncertainty of Brexit, 2019 is looking to be a difficult year for businesses in the UK. As with the London, Milton Keynes, Liverpool and Croydon offices, the Birmingham office is committed to managing and supporting clients through this period. Commenting on the year ahead, Gareth said, “I appreciate the further show of faith in me and look forward to continuing to help my contacts and their clients through the difficult period ahead.”
