The new offering includes preparing independent expert reports and acting as an expert witness in Supreme Court actions which involves investigations and analysis of company records, complex transactions, and financial statements.

Teng is a registered liquidator by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission and a Professional Member of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and the Australian Restructuring Insolvency & Turnaround Association.

He most recently served specialist insolvency Chifley Advisory servicing clients Australia wide. Before that, Teng spent over a decade at Cor Cordis, a Melbourne-based advisory and restructuring and turnaround consultancy. “Desmond excels at managing diverse stakeholders, including secured lenders, creditors, and directors,” said Breedon.

“What attracted me to Moore was the culture and connection to clients. I feel very strongly about building meaningful relationships with stakeholders, ultimately creating better results for all parties. The Moore network allows me to extend a critical service to colleagues across the region, and through the ASX-listed space.”
