Insolvency & Restructuring
Offering timely advice, guidance and support
Even the most meticulous business plan can come undone. The pain of bankruptcy or a failed business can spread far and wide. We make it our mission to provide sound advice that allows for some level of certainty—it helps clients to look toward to the next chapter.
We work with mid-market companies that need to restructure. They ask us about scheme proposals, workouts, recapitalisations, reconstructions, outstanding liabilities, valuations, transactions and creditor communications. We untangle legal structures when distressed assets have to be sold. And we negotiate insolvency disputes, defend voidable transactions, and assist with asset and debt recovery.
We help creditors get a fair deal. We’re a trusted guide in bankruptcy and closing down corporations. We know how to put together your proof of debt, recover divisible assets and conduct the bankrupt estate. We also conduct investigations for creditors and insolvency practitioners.
Secured creditors and lenders ask us to review securities and resolve Personal Property Securities Act 2009 disputes. Need to appoint an administrator to recover your secured property? We know the best in the business. We can also advise on conducting creditor meetings.
When companies go into voluntary administration, we’re there every step of the way. We assess the options and provide practical recommendations—then assist with deeds of company arrangement, liquidation or returning the company to directors.
Liquidators often feel like they’re caught between a rock and hard place. We share your burden, advising on distributions, insolvent trading, directors' duties and the unenviable task of prioritising claims. We also run interference when liquidators have to deal with regulators, creditors and debtors.
