Who we work with
BRI Ferrier works closely with a range of business stakeholders, including financiers, solicitors, accountants and creditors, as well as the directors of businesses in financial distress.
We have worked with all of Australia’s first and second tier financiers as advisers, receivers and managers, voluntary administrators and bankruptcy trustees.
As advisers, we help financiers to mitigate operational, business and financial risk, protect assets, make informed business decisions and maximise opportunities. We also help with complex litigation involving contract disputes, liability analysis including economic loss, and business valuations.
As receivers, through leadership and sophisticated stakeholder management, we take control to identify exposures, mitigate risks and deliver optimal commercial outcomes for secured creditors. Where appropriate, we are alternatively appointed as administrators to preserve a business’s value.
We help solicitors and their clients to navigate through complex financial challenges and facilitate favourable outcomes.
We routinely work with solicitors’ clients to restructure their businesses or alternatively wind them up. We also regularly provide consents to act as liquidator to delinquent debtors.
BRI Ferrier’s business recovery and insolvency specialists work with accountants and their clients to address the causes of financial distress and develop optimal solutions.
We understand the many reasons for financial strain – both personal and business. We also understand the levers that can be pulled to turn the situation around. The earlier we are introduced to a business, the greater the alternatives available to recover and rebuild.
BRI Ferrier acts on behalf of creditors throughout the insolvency process, to protect their interests and manage their claims.
We understand that the collection of debts is critical for any business. If you experience difficulties collecting money owed, you can seek to appoint BRI Ferrier, through the court process, as either official liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy.
On appointment, we take control of the debtor’s respective assets, investigate and report on all possible recoveries through voidable transactions and realise assets to maximise returns to creditors. We also assist creditors with assessing terms of trade and the viability of their customers.
We work with the directors of organisations to solve specific problems, affect a turnaround and stave off more serious financial consequences. We also provide independent advisory to directors facing contentious litigation, arbitration and regulatory scrutiny.
We understand the many pressures that can push businesses to breaking point. If engaged early enough, we also know how to turn the situation around. We work with directors to restore the viability of a distressed business and reduce the severity of the financial fallout.
When a business is no longer deemed viable, BRI Ferrier can assist directors in winding up the company’s affairs in an orderly and tax-effective manner. When a solvent company has reached the end of its useful life, BRI Ferrier can likewise assist directors and shareholders with winding up the company and settling its affairs.
If you have questions, whatever your role, we’d like to hear from you. Please contact your local BRI Ferrier office today.
