The matter

Aston Chase Group was appointed as receiver and manager of a Victorian construction business by a secured creditor with assets comprising primarily debt, plant and equipment This followed an initial informal appointment to determine the likelihood of recovery, and challenges from the company’s directors and staff post-appointment.

The solution

Upon appointment, and to navigate resistance to access by the company’s stakeholders, Aston Chace Group successfully sought court orders to take possession of the company’s assets and records. Working with the secured creditor and its legal team, Aston Chace Group sought to maximise debt recovery.

The outcomes

The appointor’s principal debt was recovered within six months of Aston Chace Group’s appointment, with default and termination fees recovered shortly thereafter.
