Banking & Finance Recovery

Lavan's Banking & Finance Recovery team deals with all aspects of secured and unsecured recovery.  The team’s portfolio of work includes acting for some of Australia’s leading financial institutions, including major banks, financial services advisors and accountants.

At Lavan, we understand the unique challenges of the Australian banking environment, particularly the scrutiny and competitive pressure under which it operates. 

We combine our knowledge of financial services reform with a clear understanding of the regulatory framework.  By working together with our firm’s Banking and Finance team, we provide you with across the board legal services.

We have the extensive litigation experience required to maximise recoveries for clients.

Our services

Borrower services

We provide pragmatic legal advice to borrowers about planning and structuring their borrowings to optimise their commercial position.  In conjunction with borrowers’ own accounting advice, we assist with asset protection strategies to optimise the benefit of our clients’ borrowings.  When a borrower client faces financial stress, we partner with them through the difficult phase and provide straightforward and realistic advice about their options.

Investor services

Lavan has extensive experience in advising investors who have suffered loss as a result of actionable wrongdoing on the part of lenders, promoters and managed investment schemes.  We will let you know the realistic prospects of recovery and the cost and time associated with it.  We will assist with obtaining injunctive relief where necessary, ultimately maximising the chances of optimal recovery of your investment.

Lender services

We act for lenders in all aspects of secured recoveries.  From the initial efficacy review of security documentation, to guiding our lender clients through borrower default and possible insolvency, through to sale of assets and ultimate recovery.  We provide a cradle-to-grave service for secured lenders.  Our multi-disciplinary skills and expertise across banking and finance litigation, as well as insolvency and reconstruction, means that we cover every aspect of recoveries.  We are proactive, time and cost conscious and always examining the fastest route to full recovery for our lender clients.
