Presenters: Steven Thomas and Associate Professor Christopher Symes
There is a lot of corporate law in Australia, over 2300 provisions in the major Act alone, and volumes of case law that expand vastly each year. Decisions on directors’ duties, insolvent trading and company service are received each year and the changes they make to the law have potential to affect both the ‘small end of town’ as well as the ‘big end of town’.
This seminar will review the 2012 case law to present a contemporary corporate law. Decisions covered will include the James Hardie case ASIC v Hellicar and the Bell Resources appeal Westpac Banking Corporation v The Bell Group Ltd (in liq) [No 3] . It will also address recent legislative changes including the Corporations Amendment (Phoenixing and Other Measures) Act 2012. This seminar will apprise those who advise proprietary and public companies.
