Corporate Breakfast Seminar Series

Join McCullough Robertson's Corporate Advisory team for a breakfast seminar series at our Brisbane office.  Designed specifically for the corporate sector, we hope you can join us for these informative business briefings.

Restructuring in times of financial distress
Even the best run businesses can come under serious financial pressure when market conditions change.  Quick, decisive action can be required.  Restructuring a business’s finances and operations in order to first survive and then prosper again can be stressful and complex. 

In this seminar, Michael Fingland of specialist turnaround and restructuring firm, Vantage Performance, will join with McCullough Robertson restructuring and insolvency and M&A experts, Partner Scott Butler and Senior Associate Aaron Dahl, to look at the key steps involved in saving and then turning around businesses at risk of financial collapse.  In doing so, they will consider the commercial and legal issues and risks which need to be managed.
