Overview

Insolvency / Reconstruction

The European debt crisis, combined with the lingering effects of the Global Financial Crisis mean that we continue to see significant levels of distressed debt, distressed corporate restructure and pre-insolvency workouts. This demands a legal adviser who can manage each critical stage of a matter with an innovative approach while recognising the risk appetite of the client.

 

 

The Addisons insolvency team advises on the practical and legal issues which a company, its administrators, directors, investors, their advisers and lenders, must be aware of, particularly in relation to the treatment of creditors' claims, which may attract ASIC scrutiny.


We provide strategic advice and litigation services including:
 

  • the legal obligations of directors and insolvency practitioners

  • the options available to directors of distressed companies, including initiating a voluntary administration (which may be followed by a Deed of Company Arrangement), or a liquidation

  • commercial and legal issues involving property of the company and reports to creditors

  • Deeds of Company Arrangement

 

Our team advises banks and finance institutions, insolvency practitioners, secured and unsecured creditors, directors & officers, financially troubled or insolvent companies, and borrowers.

 

The services we offer include:

 

  • security enforcement - including on guarantees

  • asset structuring

  • corporate litigation including shareholder disputes

  • ASIC investigations

  • bankruptcy
