Insolvency Australia- What You Should Know

When it comes to insolvency, Australia has a specific set of laws and regulations that must be followed. Lawyers will be your best resource because they will act as your lifeline, operating in the middle of you, the creditors, and the court system. Whether you have poor cash management or even just suffer a serious setback in your business, you can wind up facing the reality of declaring insolvency if you aren’t careful. Fortunately, Australia lawyers can be a great asset to your business, allowing you to keep things legal and easy throughout the process.

In Australia, insolvency rates are falling significantly compared to where they were at just a couple of years ago. In May 2009, businesses saw a 0.23% insolvency rate, while in June of 2010, that number dropped to 0.08%. However, when it comes to insolvency, Australia businesses are never completely safe. Just because statistics are dropping doesn’t mean that it can’t happen to your business. Having the right cash management practices and business operations in place can easily save you from this issue. If it is too late for your business to be saved, you need to hire a qualified lawyer to assist your business in successfully filing for an insolvency declaration.

If you are looking for lawyers to help with insolvency, Australia has plenty of different resources for you. It will be up to you to take the time to check out all of the different options that you have and find the lawyer that is right for your business needs. You should look at their experience, reputation, and the success rate of their cases. If you find an attorney that seems decent, but you can’t find information on their track record, ask. All it takes is a little curiosity on your part to get the most out of your insolvency lawyer. If they aren’t willing to answer questions like this, they probably aren’t the best lawyers to work with.

When dealing with insolvency, Australia will have different requirements and proceedings than other countries. You have to follow the law, which is where an insolvency lawyer can come in handy. Take the time to learn about your options for legal help in this area, see which options are best suited to your needs, and then determine how you are going to choose the right lawyer for your case. Anyone can survive an insolvency declaration as long as they have the proper tools and legal support.

    Our Happy Clients

    The Difference Is In Our Level Of Experience Defending The Most Difficult Cases & Our Rigorous Approach To Each Matter

    • I have known Brett Samuel and Rosendorff Lawyers for over 18 months. Brett is a commercially astute lawyer who provides excellent service, quick turnaround, responsive and useful advice and above all understands that clients expect results not just legal gobbledygook.

      I have referred Brett to a number of clients requiring commercial legal expertise and each has commented on his service and value for money approach to the law.

      I have also personally engaged Brett on a number of commercial and private matters and have found him to be an excellent ally. His advice is highlighted by providing options to the client but importantly, recommending a course of action that minimises risk and maximises outcomes. To date this approach has proven to be very valuable and what I, as a client, expects.

      I have no hesitation in recommending Brett for any commercial matter that you need advice on.

    • I have used the services of Rosendorff Lawyers for a number of years now and have found them to be a great asset to my Business Sunburst Group. Their advice concerning contractual law and from time to time commercial litigation has been indispensable. Brett Samuel is always a pleasure to deal with as he is meticulous in his research prior to any legal action we might be considering. My association with Rosendorff Lawyers has helped my business to make the correct informeddecisions and in doing so has enabled me to save many thousands of dollars that otherwise uniformed decisions may have cost me.


    • Thanks for the excellent work you and your team at Rosendorff Lawyers did throughout the whole process of setting up Tarp Asset Management. The advice given was much appreciated. Coming in under budget was a welcome surprise too. I would not hesitate to recommend Rosendorff Lawyers to anyone searching for a reputable Melbourne-based financial services law firm.
