Jeffrey’s main practice involves corporate, insolvency and bankruptcy matters, acting for both debtor and creditor clients as well as a number of trustees, liquidators and administrators. He is regularly involved in applications to terminate the winding up of companies, termination of bankruptcies and prosecuting or defending winding up or bankruptcy proceedings.

Jeffrey Chard has been involved in major cases dealing with the removal of liquidators, setting aside Deeds of Company Arrangement, ATO Director Penalty Notices, copyright infringement cases, and equitable tracing claims.

Prior to 1989, he was an electrical protection engineer in the electricity supply industry at Energy Australia (now Ausgrid).

He has been a part of the management team of the firm that documented policies and procedures for quality assurance certification for over four years.
