Bringing a new approach to bankruptcy

As one of the largest registered bankruptcy Trustees in Australia, we try to work with each and every client to achieve mutually-desired outcomes wherever possible.

We don’t believe in a standard ‘one size fits all’ approach because everyone is different. What we do believe in is looking at every client as a person, and working with you to understand your situation, your challenges, and your needs.

What does our average client look like?

Just like your neighbour. Your colleagues. Your best friend. Your parents. You.

Our clients come from a diverse range of backgrounds. They’re hard-working individuals, just like you, who have been impacted by illness, unemployment, a relationship breakdown or other external factors.

People filing for bankruptcy come from all forms of life. They include chief executives, general managers, legislators and specialist managers. There are also people who have experience in the arts, media, business, human resources, legal, accounting, finance, design, engineering, information & communications technology, education and marketing. Health professionals, bankers, welfare support workers, carers, aides, sports people, protective service workers, police and defence officers, clerical and administrative support workers, sales representatives and agents, store-persons and assistants also apply for bankruptcy, as well as labourers, machine operators, drivers, students, stay at home parents, and even people on the pension.

Best Personal Insolvency Accounting & Bankruptcy Trustee Firm 2019 & 2020 - Australian Enterprise Awards

Trustees in bankruptcy

In Australia, the administration of a Bankruptcy or Personal Insolvency Agreement can only be controlled by a licensed practitioner.

This practitioner must be an industry leader when it comes to experience and knowledge, have formal qualifications in either accountancy or commercial law, and be registered with the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA).

With over 25, 14 and 13 years in the industry respectively, and having cemented a reputation as three of the good guys, Andrew Aravanis, Ronil Roy and Alexander Clark are such practitioners.

Collective human insight

The behaviour behind the brand...

If only the walls could talk… we might be insolvency ninjas, but sometimes our conversations are just downright bizarre. After all, do we really believe that hypercoloured t-shirts have a place in fashion?

Watching TV in our exercise gear was also a hotly-contested choice

icon to represent fashion Things we think should come back into fashion

• Free transport to work
• Daylight savings all year round
