KordaMentha’s Restructuring group has facilitated some of the largest and most complex turnaround and insolvency engagements in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. In our view, there is no standard approach to distressed businesses and we are recognised for our ability to formulate and execute innovative strategies to deliver the best possible results for all stakeholders.

We provide strategic and financial analysis of under-performing companies. Our engagement may take the form of an independent business review and cover areas such as:

  • a background of the company’s operations
  • an assessment of accounting policies, financial systems and controls
  • an assessment of appropriate debt structure and bank security issues
  • a review of key management personnel
  • a review of other corporate finance alternatives such as acquisitions or disposals
  • business plan development
  • cash flow and working capital management
  • negotiations with lenders and shareholders on behalf of management
  • methods to improve cash generation and profitability
  • key recommendations to the company on strategic direction
  • key recommendations to the lender on business viability and methods to mitigate risk.

Providing strategies based on awareness and creativity, we approach all engagements with an open mind and a desire to retain and create value. If early steps are taken to address the causes of under-performance, appropriate measures can be executed to develop a coordinated and achievable recovery plan. Where there is no viable recovery option available our experienced insolvency practitioners can assist in the ultimate closure of the business.


Whilst we are proud to have been entrusted with a number of Australia’s most high profile formal engagements such as Ansett, Griffin Coal and Timbercorp, many of our greatest achievements are also our best kept secrets - those where we have partnered confidentially with our clients to stabilise and return their businesses to profitability. Clients trust our level of discretion and integrity.


As the restructuring landscape becomes more demanding, the number of stakeholders is increasing. Successful outcomes are dependent on building understanding between these stakeholders. Our approach is inclusive and wherever possible, we work towards mutually agreeable solutions that meet the needs of all parties.

Tactical and functional expertise

As a global practice covering all key Australian cities, as well as Auckland, Singapore, USA and UK, we provide our clients with access to extensive capabilities and expertise.  Where required, our Restructuring team draw on the specialist financial, consulting and analytical skills of our Forensic, Capital, Consulting, Management and Real Estate experts to provide multifaceted solutions to complex business problems.
