Perth Office Profile


In 2014, Jirsch Sutherland merged with Western Australia’s preferred trusted insolvency firm WA Insolvency Solutions (WAIS) to offer the very best local expertise and know-how to our national and international clients.

Our longstanding partners, Kim Strickland and Chris Williamson, have worked together for more than 30 years and along with fellow partner David Hurt, they offer invaluable insolvency and turnaround management services to accountants, lawyers, financiers and advisers within the CBD and regional areas of WA. The team has grown the firm into one of WA’s most prominent and respected insolvency practices.

WAIS Perth
WAIS Partners: Chris Williamson, Kim Strickland, and David Hurt.

Our dedicated team of 23 is highly experienced in providing formal corporate and insolvency services and includes 4 registered liquidators and 4 trustees in bankruptcy:

Attracting and retaining the right people is a key differentiating factor for our firm, and the combination of stability and support of our staff means we have been able to build, develop and maintain strong relationships with accountants, lawyers and other professional advisers, financial institutions and stakeholders throughout across various industries within Western Australia and across the country. This stability and familiarity is a major factor in our success.

WAIS is known for its proactive and innovative approach, providing regular training sessions and seminars on a variety of insolvency topics to potential and existing clients.

WAIS’s head office is located in Perth but regional areas are well served with offices in Busselton, Albany, Bunbury, Esperance and Kalgoorlie. We also travel regularly throughout WA providing insolvency services in towns from Geraldton up to Port Hedland and Broome.

We work with local, national and international firms and associations across myriad industries that trust us to work ethically, fairly and with empathy. Our number one objective is to consider all options with a view to maximising the return to creditors, while minimising the financial and emotional stress experienced by those in difficulties.

Our in-depth understanding of local business issues combined with access to national insolvency resources means we continue to expand the reach of our expert insolvency services in WA.

According to ASIC, WAIS undertook more voluntary administrations in WA in 2015-16 than any other firm and nearly twice as many creditors voluntary liquidations as our nearest competitor (Source:  ASIC Insolvency Notices).
