Alex Smith has over 18 years' experience working on restructuring and insolvency matters across a wide range of industries and sectors including real estate, retail, infrastructure, construction, leisure and automotive. She prides herself in providing practical and commercially driven legal and strategic advice to lenders, investors and creditors in relation to formal insolvency situations, security and debt enforcements and consensual restructurings. She advises companies experiencing financial distress and company directors on their duties at such times. She acts for liquidators, receivers and administrators of insolvent companies.
Alex's professional experience has been divided between Australia (Sydney and Melbourne) and the UK (London) and the restructuring projects she has worked on have spanned four continents. Alex's significant previous experience as an in-house counsel makes her very well placed to understand the commercial and reputational factors which drive client needs, particularly in restructuring and stressed situations.
During the three years she spent living in Mumbai, India, which have contributed to her truly global outlook, Alex undertook charitable volunteer work teaching underprivileged children and also provided volunteer support to ANZBAI, the Australia and New Zealand Business Association in India.
