Our legal team within our law firm provides comprehensive creditor services, including advice on insolvency and restructuring, debt recovery, and enforcement of security.

Our creditor lawyers work closely with our clients to protect their interests and maximise recoveries in challenging situations.

  • Debtors defaulting on their obligations or worse becoming insolvent can cause business failure.
  • If you are a creditor to a business that is in financial difficulty or entering into insolvency proceedings, we can help maximise what you recover and minimise the impact of insolvency on you.

The insolvency of a business or an individual can affect trade suppliers, customers, landlords, lenders, and employees.

If a debtor is nearing, or is already in, a formal insolvency process (such as liquidation, administration, bankruptcy, or voluntary arrangement), we can advise and assist you with:

  • Understanding your options and rights as a creditor
  • The appointment of insolvency practitioners to manage and investigate the affairs of the debtor, which may include pursuing action against connected or associated parties or third parties to recover money for creditors
  • Lodging your claim
  • Recovering goods subject to retention of title
  • Negotiating terms with insolvency practitioners where they are trading a business and want you to continue to supply to them
  • Reviewing proposals from the debtor and/or insolvency practitioner
  • Attending meetings of creditors or acting on creditors’ committees on your behalf.
