Justin Howlett


Justin has 18 years experience in both personal/corporate insolvency and business recovery, the last 12 of which has been with SellersMuldoonBenton, culminating in Justin becoming a Partner in 2010.

Residing in Regional Victoria (Ballarat), and heading up the Geelong office of SMB, Justin specialises in assisting regional business advisors and their clients with any distressed business situations and/or personal solvency concerns, and has an acute awareness of the often specific issues regional appointments involve.

Whilst based out of the Geelong and Melbourne offices of SMB, Justin also spends considerable time in all corners of regional Victoria assisting an array of Practitioners and their clients in times of need.

His career has exposed him to a vast array of industries with agriculture, manufacturing, hospitality and retail being most prevalent.

As a Registered Liquidator and Official Liquidator Justin has extensive experience in managing companies in Voluntary Administration, Receivership and Liquidation, adopting a “hands on” role to ensure the most beneficial outcome for all stakeholders is achieved.

He is also experienced in all forms of personal insolvency, where he focuses on guiding individuals through their current financial position and the many options which may be available to them.

Justin is a strong advocate of early intervention and raising awareness of all options available to individuals and businesses in financial distress – which in turn increase the chances of a successful outcome.

Seen as a safe set of hands in times of need, many of Justin’s Accounting, Legal or Financial Counsellor clients simply appreciate the opportunity to pick up the phone to troubleshoot a certain problem or clarify any immediate actions required.
