Who Gets What? Priorities and Clawbacks During Liquidation

Webinar Paper | Presenters: Tony Johnson, Partner, Martelli McKegg; Tim Fitzgerald, Partner, Bell Gully. Two central components of the liquidation regime established by the Companies Act 1993 are the clawback provisions, which empower liquidators to recover assets paid out before liquidation, and Schedule 7, which establishes the relative priority of unsecured creditors in respect of the company’s remaining assets. This webinar will provide an overview of both the clawback provisions and Schedule 7. It will be of interest to practitioners advising entities before or during insolvency, or entities dealing with companies that may become insolvent in the future.

Health and Safety Prosecutions: The Issue of Reparations

Seminar Paper | Presenters: Lucy Moffitt, Senior Solicitor, WorkSafe; Rob Coltman, Partner, Duncan Cotterill; Grant Nicholson, Partner, Kensington Swan | Chair: His Honour Judge McIlraith Reparations in the context of a prosecution under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 seem to give rise to more questions than answers. Will a limited personal injury regime become part of the judicial process? When will actuarial input be necessary and who will bear these costs? Who is a victim and how will they be represented in court and by whom? Taking the form of a discussion, this seminar will look, from a variety of perspectives, at some of these problems and consider ways that they may be dealt with. There will be opportunities for the audience to participate and to engage with the representatives from WorkSafe during and after the event.
