Frank Lo Pilato
National Head of Restructuring & Recovery

Frank is a Partner and Director at RSM Australia, and has been with the firm since 1991.

He is well known and respected in the Canberra community for his down-to-earth and open-door approach, and the ability to find solutions to even the most complex financial challenges.

Frank Lo Pilato is a Partner of RSM Australia Partners and a Director of RSM Australia Pty Ltd.

Frank is a registered liquidator and registered bankruptcy trustee and is highly skilled in guiding individuals and directors through personal insolvency, bankruptcy, or corporate insolvency. 

“All my initial client meetings are free because I want to understand a person’s situation so I can provide guidance on their options. Sometimes we resolve the issue then and there and they can move forward with recovery on their own. I enjoy listening to people because it helps me give the right advice, and I never consider any job too big or too small – I work with everyone.” 

With more than 30 years’ experience in insolvency and restructuring and recovery, Frank has a deep understanding of Australian financial and corporate laws. He is passionate about helping people get through times of hardship and developing a plan so they can move forward with confidence.

In his spare time, you’ll find Frank at a Canberra Raiders or Brumbies game or watching sport on TV. Frank’s wife often jokes that he suffers from sport FOMO (fear of missing out) – leading him to watch or attend anything from Euro football to the Super Bowl.
