Jirsch Sutherland has launched our new Asia Desk to offer business recovery, restructure and insolvency advice and expertise to Australian Asian businesses.

The Asia Desk’s high-calibre multinational insolvency specialists Amit Ghumber and Fei Wei are guided by Jirsch Sutherland Partner Melissa Lau, a Registered Liquidator and accountant fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and Bahasa with over 20 years’ experience in insolvency and corporate banking at leading firms in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Australia. In addition to an impressive track record of turning around large-scale public and private companies, Lau is skilled in forensic and fraud investigation, including asset and fund tracing.

The Asia Desk team will be offering Australian Asian businesses and individuals advice on restructuring, financial strategy and insolvency procedures, including Safe Harbour, Debt Agreements and Financial Strategy, and Corporate and Personal Insolvency solutions including Voluntary Administration, Deeds of Company Arrangement, Receivership, Liquidation, and Bankruptcy.

“I’m looking forward to meeting owners and directors of Australian Asian businesses and discussing strategies to help them grow, change and prosper – whether it’s leveraging new opportunities, restructuring to improve performance, or winding up with the best possible outcome and to give them a strong start for the next venture,” says Lau.

Every member of the Asia Desk team has a comprehensive understanding of local and Asian business cultures, practices and markets and their fluency in Mandarin, Cantonese, Bahasa, Sinhalese, Hindi and Punjabi gives business owners the convenience and ease of conversing in their own language.

The Asia Desk is a national operation, with local and international experience in a wide variety of sectors, including retail, hospitality, manufacturing, property, agriculture and construction.

For a free, no obligation first consultation, call the Asia Desk team on 1300 547 724 or email Asiadesk@jirschsutherland.com.au.
