We assisted our client – whose workers accidentally caused a bushfire leading to greater than $20 million damage – to make an insurance claim and protect against declinature risk.

Work included providing policy coverage advice, obtaining a solvency opinion, quickly effecting an appropriate, legal restructure (closely following professional external tax advice), and arranging to appoint an external administrator.

This work preserved and protected the business at the same time as it opened the door for direct access between those people affected by the fire and the relevant insurer.
