Rising star joins insolvency team at Burness Paull

Burness Paull has snapped up a rising star from a rival firm to head up a strengthened restructuring and insolvency team.

Michael Thomson joins Burness Paull as a Partner in the Corporate Finance division. He is currently a Senior Associate at Pinsent Masons.

Burness Paull Chairman Philip Rodney said: “Michael is a rising star. He has deep technical expertise, real commercial acumen and has built up a strong profile in the market, I know he will be an enormous asset to Burness Paull.”

Mr Rodney said the firm had identified specialist restructuring and non-contentious insolvency advice as a target for business growth – and believes Thomson is the ideal person to spearhead the firm’s development in that area.

Thomson trained at Dundas & Wilson and has been a dedicated restructuring and insolvency lawyer for more than ten years. He said: “I am excited to be joining Burness Paull as Partner. It is a firm of the highest quality and I very much look forward to playing a part in its exciting growth plans.”
