The History Behind Our Name

View of the Millwall company’s works, Millwall

Our name is over 100 years old

Mackay & Goodwin handled the two most famous cases which went on to give us powerful legal precedents, such as the pari passu or ‘equal footing’ rule.

Mackay ensured that all creditors in equal classes are treated the same through his work in the Jeavons Case. Goodwin contributed to 19th Century legal insolvency reform through his work on the Salomon Case, ensuring that any person, even the smallest business, could have protection from hardship following business insolvency.

Their work laid the foundations for what we do today. In our constantly evolving world, we’re always looking for innovative ways to deal with your issues, just as Mackay & Goodwin did over 100 years ago.

Our firm today and looking to the future

Insolvency and restructuring laws have significantly developed since the days of Mackay and
Goodwin - however the legacy from their work will exist forever.

Our aim is to keep pushing boundaries and provide the same results in today’s fast evolving
environment, just like Mackay and Goodwin did in the past.

These following pillars, form Our Mission:

To be the new leading cutting edge corporate advisory and restructuring firm in Australia.

To always remember why we do what we do, which is to create something extraordinary out of distressed situations.

To be bold and innovative without the boundaries that traditional practices experience whilst at the same time upholding the utmost ethical and moral principles.
