Insolvency



Insolvency law is a highly technical area of the law with a growing importance in the current economic environment.

Lowndes Jordan has significant expertise in all areas of insolvency law and has extensive experience acting for:

  • insolvency practitioners on all aspects of liquidations and receiverships.
  • creditors of insolvent businesses in assisting them with enforcement of securities (including sales of assets by receivers and mortgagees) and assisting both secured and unsecured creditors with priority disputes under the Personal Property Securities Act 2001 and related legislation.
  • suppliers and customers of insolvent businesses in defending proceedings or claims brought against them by liquidators or receivers.
  • directors and business owners of insolvent businesses including advising and assisting directors and owners of failed businesses on restructuring options and personal liability issues.


Our extensive insolvency experience also enables us to add another perspective to our trust and asset planning, property and general commercial advice. Knowing where insolvency traps are is an obvious first step in helping our clients avoid them.

We also assist clients with debt recovery actions against both companies and individuals and regularly conduct and advise on cost effective and successful recovery processes, including receivership and liquidation.
