Ex-Bridge partner’s licence revoked by ICAEW

THE ICAEW has revoked the licence of Bridge Business Recovery co-founder James Bradney.

His licence was withdrawn with immediate effect by “urgent order”, as the ICAEW believes Bradney’s capability to continue to function as a licence holder is “prejudicial to the public interest”.

In July, KPMG administrators Colin Haig and Samantha Bewick were appointed to Bridge Business Recovery.

The order against Bradney, who left the firm before its collapse, was made on 29 June by the institute’s licensing committee.

Ex-partner Tony Murphy has now taken a role at Harrisons, John Dickinson has been appointed to CBW; Andrew Duncan, Matt Evans, Alex Cadwallader and Rob Horton have joined Leonard Curtis.

A statement from the administrators said “significant irregularities” led to the firm’s collapse.
