This company was involved in a landmark court case heard in the NSW Supreme Court in 2015. Alceon agreed to lend $23 million to property development entity Quadwest, which was in desperate need of funds to pay significant creditors and ensure completion of a large residential project in Perth. One of the conditions of the loan was that the developer's elderly parents would need to give up their family home if Quadvest defaulted on the loan, which it did. The court found that this condition of the loan was "unconscionable", and the family home was saved.
