Insolvency and Reconstruction

Our Insolvency & Restructuring team can assist with all aspects of restructuring, large or small, and seeks to implement legally available avenues in creative ways to assist businesses in preserving value and momentum.

Commercial Disputes

We can act in or advise on any commercial dispute that you or your business is experiencing and formulate a way forward.  This includes access to an experienced and certified mediator if required. Our focus is always on a commercial outcome in order to maximise your results. We advise on preventative tactics so that you can avoid disputes in the future and we help minimise the damage when you are on the receiving end of a claim.

Asset Protection Strategies

We are experts in not only helping you recover your wealth from others but also ensuring your wealth is not at risk from potential claimants.

In 2014, Australian total private wealth – held mainly in family homes, superannuation and investment portfolios – was over $6 trillion despite asset protection being perhaps the most misunderstood and neglected form of personal financial protection.

Restructuring & Turnaround

All businesses should seek advice in order to create an environment for success.  We will meet with you to consider both your short-term and long-term goals and assist you to construct a plan to help you achieve the best results possible because we want your business to succeed.

We are also experts in insolvency and turnaround.  If your business is experiencing a downturn or has been issued with a demand or suit, we will assist you to avoid liquidation now and to restructure for a more profitable and secure future.

Getting Paid

We conduct debt recovery for clients of all types – from small businesses to large multinational organisations. We conduct all debt recovery for a fixed fee or a fixed percentage (where solicitors’ rules permit). We provide debt recovery services across an entire debtor book and at a discount. We aim to make debt recovery an institutionalised part of your credit management policies so that you are in control of your cash flow.

Corporate & Shareholder Disputes

Terry Chamberlain, the founder of Chamberlains, is an experienced and certified mediator available to provide mediation services when required.

If mediation is unsuccessful, Chamberlains can assist and provide advice with a view to settling the dispute in your favour with minimum impact on your company’s value.

Corporate Insolvency and Turnaround

Chamberlains are experts in corporate insolvency and turnaround. If your business is experiencing a downturn or has been issued with a demand or suit, we can assist you in avoiding liquidation. Additionally we can provide analysis and planning to restructure your business for a more profitable and secure future.

Personal Insolvency

If you find yourself in a position where your personal debt is becoming unserviceable, then you may need to consider your personal insolvency options. Chamberlains can help navigate the process of bankruptcy to find the best solution to debts you may never be able to repay.

Acting for Creditors and Receivership

Chamberlains works with creditors whose interests are adversely affected by the insolvency of an individual or company to achieve best possible commercial outcomes. We assist official receivers to effectively collect and sell company and administrators to restructure affairs to mitigate default losses.

Insolvency Litigation

Chamberlains work with a range of clients in formulating courses of actions in personal and corporate insolvency matters. We advise on preventative tactics so that you can avoid disputes in the future and we help minimise the damage when you are on the receiving end of a claim.

Asset Protection and Risk Mitigation

Asset protection is perhaps the most misunderstood and neglected form of personal and corporate financial protection. Chamberlains are experts in not only helping you recover your wealth from others but also ensuring your wealth is not at risk from potential claimants.

Liquidators and Bankruptcies

Chamberlains works with insolvency practitioners in their capacity as liquidators to act on their behalf following a corporate collapse. We have close working relationships with leading insolvency accountants and have substantial experience in dealing with regulators, including ASIC and The ASX.

Administrations and Schemes of Arrangements

Chamberlains are well versed in assisting companies in employing administrations and schemes of arrangement for solvent restructuring and friendly mergers and acquisitions within the Australian market.
