Bankruptcy has serious consequences for creditors and individuals. The cost of not seeking the right advice can have severe implications.

We act for private bankruptcy trustees, accounting firms, financial institutions, public and private companies as well as individuals. Our expertise extends beyond creditor services and encompasses bankruptcy trustee services as well as services for debtors.

We have experience in acting for: 

  • creditors to bankrupt debtors 
  • creditors in preference and other claims made by bankruptcy trustees 
  • advising and acting for bankruptcy trustees in every aspect of bankruptcy administration including the recovery of assets, resolving disputed claims, unfair preferences and anti-avoidance claims, proof of debt disputes, trustee remuneration and other matters that fall within the Bankruptcy Act 
  • financial institutions in bankruptcy proceedings (following on from judgment obtained as part of high volume debt recovery)
  • defending bankruptcy proceedings brought by creditors
  • assisting bankrupts in defending actions brought by a bankruptcy trustee against family members or themselves
  • drafting and negotiating informal or formal debt agreements for people seeking to compromise their debts as an alternative to bankruptcy
