The barristers of Level Twenty Seven Chambers have broad and deep experience in insolvency and bankruptcy matters. Members are regularly retained to advise and act on behalf of financiers, external administrators and company directors in:
- winding up proceedings;
- claims by administrators or liquidators;
- court applications for directions for administrators and liquidators in complex insolvencies;
- challenges to adjudications on proofs of debt;
- proceedings brought by or against receivers;

- windings up of managed investment schemes.
The collective expertise of Level Twenty Seven Chambers in this area is also reflected in the listing by Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession of ten members of Chambers as leading Queensland insolvency barristers (2019-2020) and two members in the Australia-wide section (2020). In addition two members of Chambers are listed at Band 1 for Restructuring and Insolvency by Chambers & Partners Asia Pacific 2020-21 and 6 members are listed by the Australian Financial Review’s Best Lawyers® 2021.
