The Jones Partners story goes back to 1970 when Brian Henry Kahlefeldt, a Chartered Accountant started an Insolvency Firm in the Riverina Region of NSW, Temora, NSW. In 1986 Michael Jones acquired Brian’s Firm. After building a branch network of Insolvency and Business Reconstruction Firms throughout country NSW and the ACT, Michael relocated to Greater Sydney in 1989 where he practiced from Bankstown, Parramatta and Sydney.
Jones Partners was established in 2006 with the head office being based in the Sydney CBD.
Principals Bruce Gleeson and Daniel Soire have been involved with the Firm since the time it was initially established in Sydney and Parramatta in the early to mid-90’s. While the Firm’s name has changed slightly over the years, the “Jones” name has remained constant, along with the philosophy of the Firm.
In 2007 Jones Partners established a North-West Sydney office in Norwest Business Park, Norwest recognising the importance of being accessible to business owners, individuals and professional advisors in Greater Western Sydney. With the continued growth of Greater Western Sydney and ensuring our accessibility, we subsequently established the South-West Sydney office in Narellan Business Park, Narellan in 2013. More recently and notwithstanding the challenges of the Covid pandemic we have also opened an office in Southern Sydney, Miranda.
Critically the Principals and other Senior Managers take an active and ongoing interest in these areas of Greater Sydney, and we are regularly considering other areas where we can also make a meaningful contribution to the local community, particularly acting on a pro-bono basis when required.
All our Principals are “hands on” qualified professionals and have an enormous depth of experience in this field across a range of industries. We also have professional resources spread across a range of specialities. We utilise these to provide the most desirable outcomes for all stakeholders.
With around 30 staff we can handle complex, large and long running appointments. Our team structure and resourcefulness of staff members also enables us to effectively deal with smaller appointments. Irrespective of the complexity and size of the assignment we recognise that in providing leadership and clarity to business owners and individuals we obtain better outcomes for all stakeholders.
The fields of business reconstruction, exit planning, corporate insolvency and bankruptcy are dynamic and in a state of constant change. This requires an acute understanding of legislative framework (and likely reform), reconstruction possibilities and latest trend recovery or realisation strategies. With a continual focus on targeted staff training, we ensure that we can optimise strategies based on the current regulatory and business environment settings.
At Jones Partners, we make it our mission to provide honest, accurate and realistic advice that business owners and individuals facing financial difficulty can apply to rebuild their lives and businesses quickly and with the least amount of stress. Importantly we also take the time to understand the issues that have led to the present situation. We see this as important to successfully formulate and implement tailored solutions.
We pride ourselves on our ability to communicate with our clients in “plain english” when dealing with the complex financial challenges they are dealing with. Business owners and individuals typically have not been exposed to such a situation previously and appreciate the time we take in leaving no question unanswered. We are committed to helping stakeholders clearly understand their position and obligations required to deal with their affairs.
