Restructuring & Insolvency

Restructuring & Insolvency

Our experience

Arnold Bloch Leibler is a strong advocate for improving existing statutory frameworks to facilitate a more modern approach to corporate reorganisation and insolvency arrangements in Australia.

Over the last 20 years, we have advised on some of Australia’s largest and most complex corporate restructuring and insolvency matters including Arrium, Ansett Airlines, Nine Entertainment, Alinta, Centro, One.Tel and Timbercorp. These are the types of matters that have reinforced our market reputation and have been the catalyst for changes in insolvency law. 

Our commercial approach to administration procedures and moratoria, and debt refinancing, maximises the opportunity for a company to remain in existence and thereby increases returns for creditors and shareholders.

“Clearly they know the law but they are also familiar with all the players in the restructuring space and the practical side of how deals are done. They can become strategic advisers.”
