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.

The court found that this condition of the loan was "unconscionable", and the family home was saved.
