De-Risking the Distressed: Risk and People Solutions for Distressed Companies

The COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the Australian economy has been severe and it is anticipated that Australian companies will operate under challenging economic conditions for many months, barring a breakthrough in treatment. Regardless, the pandemic will exert its influence on our economy for the foreseeable future and the associated downturn may place many companies in distress.

To assist stakeholders to navigate through distressed situations, Marsh and Mercer have created a dedicated taskforce of M&A, insurance and people risk specialists to advise companies, directors, private equity funds, insolvency practitioners, lawyers and other advisors to manage the unique set of risks and costs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic across the critical areas of risk and people throughout each phase of the restructuring and turnaround lifecycle.

To learn about the key risk and people issues pertinent to each stage of the restructuring and turnaround lifecycle, and to explore our full suite of solutions and services, download a full copy of De-Risking the Distressed: Risk and People Solutions for Distressed Companies.
