Biography

Alison McManus is a restructuring and insolvency lawyer based in Sydney.

Alison is responsible for the day-to-day carriage of a number of large, highly contested residential and corporate mortgage enforcement and credit recovery proceedings.  Her work in this arena requires Alison to be across a number of areas of law.

She regularly deals with fraud, negligence, insolvency (both personal and corporate), enforcement of judgments, recovery of shortfalls, disposal of assets and public examinations, farm debt mediation and dealing with consumer groups such as the Consumer Credit Legal Centre, COSL and FOS.  Alison also oversees the mortgage recovery paralegal and sales teams as well as supervising associates in respect of the running of mortgage recovery proceedings.

Alison is a member of the possessions list user group conducted at the Supreme Court of NSW. This is a working group comprised of representatives of key firms involved in possession proceedings, members of the bar and consumer groups (such as Legal Aid and the Consumer Credit Legal Group) and members of the bench.  

The working group focuses on the amendment of laws regarding possession proceedings and the running of possession matters in the Supreme Court and includes preparing and issuing Supreme Court practice notes, drafting precedents (for example, short form statements of claim and default judgment applications for possession proceedings) and how best to deal with the running of matters of the Supreme Court possession list.
