The team at Meyer Vandenberg is here to help with all your legal issues arising in relation to bankruptcy. Our extensive experience includes working with creditors, debtors, joint property owners and trustees.
If you are a creditor, we can work with you to use the bankruptcy law to recover your debt from an insolvent debtor.
If you are a debtor at risk of bankruptcy or already bankrupt, we can advise and represent you for a multiple of issues concerning your bankruptcy. For example:
- If you have been served with a Bankruptcy Notice, we can advise you about your options for dealing with the Notice, including negotiating with your creditors or setting the Bankruptcy Notice aside.
- If you are already bankrupt, we can act to challenge the Sequestration Order, or negotiate on your behalf with your creditors and your trustee to annul your bankruptcy, or liaise with your trustee generally to ensure they act within their power and you retain the assets you are entitled to under bankruptcy law.
If you are a person who owns property jointly with a bankrupt person, we can work with you to ensure your full entitlement in the property is recognised by the incoming trustee.
If you are a trustee in bankruptcy, we can act to protect your rights and meet your obligations arising under bankruptcy law, and assist you recover assets to the bankrupt estate for distribution to creditors.
