Liquidation law in Australia is primarily governed by the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). It provides a legal framework for the liquidation or ‘winding up’ of an insolvent company, which is a process involving the cessation of business operations, the sale of company assets to repay creditors, and the eventual dissolution of the company.

There are two types of liquidation

1. Voluntary liquidation: This is initiated by the company’s directors when they conclude that the company is insolvent and cannot meet its financial obligations.

2. Court liquidation: This is ordered by a court following an application, usually by a creditor, for bankruptcy, asserting that the company is insolvent and unable to repay its debts. Liquidation law requires a licensed insolvency practitioner, known as a liquidator, to oversee the process. The liquidator’s duties include selling the company’s assets, investigating the company’s affairs, reporting unlawful activities (like insolvent trading) to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), and distributing the proceeds to creditors according to the order of priority set by law. Please note that this is a simplified overview, and liquidation law can be complex, with variations depending on specific circumstances. Consulting with an insolvency lawyer is recommended to understand all the implications involved in the process.

We wholeheartedly recommend her services, particularly if you're seeking someone you can place your utmost trust in.

Recently, because of selling a house, I got to know Ms. Tina from this law firm through a friend's introduction. A very cute and beautiful girl who can speak English Mandarin and Cantonese fluently. In the whole process of selling a house, the business is quite professional and skilled, explaining the clauses in the contract that the customer does not understand, and actively avoiding the unfavorable treaties for the customer. So the whole transaction went very smoothly, and all the house payments have been received today. Thanks to this beautiful lawyer in this law firm.

He took an interest in my concerns and was very clear and thorough with his explanations of the legal aspects. He also went the extra mile to research any grey areas and promptly got back to us to confirm his findings. I am very grateful for the help from John and as a result of our consultation I have learnt the general rules of intellectual property copyright issues.
