Amendments that took effect on 1 July impact on ipso facto clauses in new contracts to prevent automatic termination because the company has entered formal insolvency. This month’s Proctor looks at the changes to Part 5.3A of the Corporations Act and their significance for practitioners. We also look at the concept of good faith in contracts and its current standing, and consider the potential for criminal charges in succession law matters, particularly elder abuse. These articles, and the many regular features, are available now in the August edition of Proctor.
Proctor is now available to be read on your smart-phone or tablet, with iOS and Android apps now available for Queensland Law Society members. Android and Apple users can now download the app from their respective online stores below.
