About O’Brien Palmer

O’Brien Palmer was established in March 1996, following the resignation of John O’Brien and Chris Palmer from the Sydney practice of BDO. In September 2000, the firm merged with an insolvency practice conducted by Michael Wayland. Both John O’Brien and Michael Wayland have now retired.

block1EXPERIENCE YOU CAN TRUST

There is no substitute for the combination of experience and technical competence.  Over the last 30 years, our senior practitioners have been exposed to many industry sectors developing considerable business expertise.

 

block4THE POSITIVE APPROACH

At the initial briefing, we are able to quickly assess the situation with the aim of finding commercial and practical solutions to the problems at hand, whether it be by way of the implementation of a recovery strategy or by use of the legislative protection provided by a formal insolvency appointment.

 

RELATIONSHIPS WITH STAKEHOLDERS

Over the years, we have assisted bankers and other financiers in dealing with their problem accounts. We also have strong relationships in the general business community and with legal & accounting firms of all sizes. We are committed to providing a quality service at a realistic cost with the aim of ensuring the best possible outcome for all stakeholders. A key element of our service is that the appointee remains active in the administration and accessible to stakeholders.

 

block3TIME FOR ACTION

Far too often, principals delay taking action in the unrealistic expectation that circumstances will improve. The stress this causes can be immense. We have found over the years that the best results are obtained if principals seek advice before their problems become insurmountable. The time for action is now.
