Ashurst's Restructuring practice covers the field in insolvency, turnaround, restructuring and distressed investing, distinguishing us from our Australian competitors. We are the go-to firm for complex, significant matters and are instructed when it really matters because of our unparalleled experience across the spectrum of issues arising from corporate distress, distressed investing and formal insolvencies. This uniquely balanced approach means we have a true understanding of all stakeholder positions and achieve exceptional results for our clients.

We operate at the forefront of the market, providing clients with unrivalled, invaluable market knowledge gained from our deep experience. Whether applying creative techniques to invest in a distressed company, working to turn around a company in difficulty, or managing a major corporate collapse, we have the skill and experience to resolve these matters.

Testament to this is our position as lead advisor in virtually all of Australia's most significant restructurings, insolvencies and corporate collapses in the last three decades, many of which required us to develop and apply cutting-edge, first-to-market transaction structures. Examples include: Atlas Iron, Babcock & Brown, Banksia, Bridgecorp, BBY, Bell Group, Billabong, BIS Industries, Boart Longyear, Channel 10, Enron, Fitness First, GE Commercial Finance, Gunns Group, HIH Insurance, Imdex, Lehman Brothers, MF Global, Nine Entertainment, Quintus, Slater & Gordon and WICET.
