Thomas Braziel
Founder and Managing Partner

I am a partner at 117 Partners and 507 Capital, two firms that specialize in providing liquidity and value to clients and stakeholders in complex and challenging situations involving distressed and alternative credit, bankruptcy claim purchasing, and restructuring advisory. With over 14 years of experience in the investment management industry, I have developed a deep expertise in these areas and operate globally.

At 117 Partners and 507 Capital, I am responsible for deal sourcing, due diligence, negotiation, and execution of transactions involving distressed debt, liens, judgments, distressed assets, and frozen accounts. I also provide restructuring advisory and bankruptcy claim brokering and servicing to creditors and debtors. I leverage my skills in investment management, capital markets, and mathematics to analyze and evaluate opportunities, risks, and returns. I enjoy working with a diverse and talented team of professionals who share my passion for finding creative and innovative solutions in the distressed credit space.
