Restructuring, Insolvency & Credit Management expertise

Commercial entities, large and small, can find themselves in situations where their financial position is not as strong as they would like.  Reaching out to an experienced team when you encounter financial difficulty should be the first step, so your business does not end up in a formal insolvency. We can assist with a range of restructuring solutions. If formal insolvency is the only option, we can help you choose which is best for you and support you through the process.

For creditors, a delinquent debtor can be the difference between your business being solvent or insolvent. We can protect your business by ensuring your terms are robust and your goods and funds properly secured. We can assist with all aspects of credit management and debt recovery, including trade credit insurance and regulatory compliance advice.

For individuals, bankruptcy is a challenge that few want to face.  However, there are other solutions which may be available to avoid it. Our dedicated and knowledgeable team can provide peace of mind while working through the options which suit you best.

We offer a wealth of experience in assisting financial institutions, trade creditors, debtors and insolvency practitioners in complex, highly charged and stressful situations.  We have advised and assisted individuals and companies at all stages. We have acted in some of New Zealand’s largest insolvencies from international corporates through to small local businesses.
