Felicity's Recent Experience

Octaviar

HDY acts for Bentleys Corporate Recovery on all aspects of the liquidation of the Octaviar Group (formerly MFS) and the resulting global litigation. The collapse of Octaviar is one of the country's largest ever liquidations. The formal recognition of the Australian proceedings against Octaviar in the US Bankruptcy Court in New York in 2013 are testament to the significance of the liquidation and its global impact.
