Legal issues arising out of debt, financial distress and insolvency often require fast action, and advice that is both technically strong but also practical.

We advise parties in all aspects of insolvency and debt recovery matters.  As such we are able to approach your problem with an experience grounded in understanding the issues from all perspectives.  Our work includes:

  • Frequently acting for insolvency practitioners engaged in liquidations and receiverships.  This includes regularly engaging in disputes regarding priority of securities under the PPSA legislation, and in attempted recovery of secured assets and debt.
  • Advising creditors on all aspects of debt recovery – including enforcement of securities (both mortgages and personal property securities), and conducting debt recovery litigation.
  • Advising financially distressed persons and entities, including on restructuring options and creditor compromises.
  • Advising various parties in relation to claims brought by liquidators, including voidable preference claims and directors duties issues.
