Insolvency & Business Recovery


As part of our commitment to providing a value-added service to Australian small businesses, Australianbiz regularly publish articles on Insolvency, Turnaround and Forensic Accounting. These articles are written by O'Neill Partners. 

O’Neill Partners is a boutique commercial law firm with a niche corporate and personal insolvency practice, headed by:

  • Michael O’Neill (Corporate Insolvency and Reconstruction);
  • Colin Brown (Corporate Insolvency and Reconstruction); and
  • Sally Nash (Personal Insolvency and Bankruptcy).

We act for liquidators, administrators, deed administrators and receivers across a range of industry sectors. We also act for various stakeholders associated with companies and individuals suffering financial distress, including directors, shareholders, secured and unsecured creditors.

In addition, Sally Nash heads a team acting for individuals, secured creditors, unsecured creditors and trustees associated with personal bankruptcy matters.

The Firm has close relationships with many of Australia’s leading insolvency practitioners. We are sought out by our clients for the commercial and strategic approach that we bring to their work.

We have extensive experience in all areas of insolvency and reconstruction including:

  • Early diagnosis and advice on legal issues affecting solvency;
  • Restructuring and workout solutions for companies in financial distress;
  • The preparation of deeds of company arrangement, schemes of arrangement and other informal arrangements;
  • Acting for administrators, liquidators and receivers on all aspects of their appointments;
  • acting for secured and unsecured creditors in enforcement and recovery actions;
  • Advising individuals and Trustees on personal bankruptcy matters;
  • All forms of insolvency related litigation and dispute resolution.

We also have specialist experience in litigation funded work and regularly assist insolvency practitioners to both assess that the potential claims are fundable and obtain funding through our connections with the major and private litigation funders.

Our insolvency specialists are members of the Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association (ARITA) and are recognised leaders in their field.
