• Robert Thompson has been elected Chair of the Civil Court Users Association (CCUA), after carrying out the role of Vice-Chair for five years. 

    The CCUA is the largest of its kind for civil litigators within the creditor sector in England and Wales. It is the only UK lobby which supports members exclusively on civil court, individual and commercial litigation matters relating to debt recovery, insolvency, and dispute resolution.

    Rob brings a wealth of experience to the role having worked at Brachers for nearly 30 years, where he is a partner and head of the Collections and Recoveries team.

    He has also been influential in the firm being lauded for its ethical debt collections work with a Credit Excellence Award earlier this year when the firm took out the ‘legal and enforcement profession’ prize. The team was also shortlisted in the Managing Partners’ Forum Awards in the ‘outstanding thought leadership’ category. The Collections and Recoveries team have also recently been awarded the top Tier 1 ranking in leading legal directory Legal 500, for the eighth year in a row.

    “After many years with the CCUA, I am honoured to be elected Chairman. There is a lot of work ahead during very difficult times, however I am looking forward to the challenge. The CCUA plays an important role to bring together users of the court service to provide valuable insight on the latest industry developments. We are also here to navigate changes in government and make sure everyone is aware of any shortcomings in the court system, as well as inspire and lobby for improvements at the highest level of government.”

    “My time at the CCUA has been one of the highlights of my career. The other, is being part of a team which has remained key partner to a global credit card company for more than three decades, in an extremely intense and challenging industry and through some tough economic periods.”

    Rob is also Chair of the Creditor Recoveries Liaison Group, which brings together key partners in the credit industry to discuss key developments, as well as course lecturer on debt recovery with Central Law Training.
