Just a quick update to share details of a couple of insolvency events I’m involved in. Firstly, I chaired a webinar this week on the decision in Dalian Huarui Heavy Industry International Company Ltd v Clyde & Co Australia  WASC 132, which considered the PPSA treatment of funds held in a solicitor’s trust account pending the outcome of a commercial arbitration. The webinar featured barristers Ronny Chen and Jim Johnson (both from Frederick Jordan Chambers) and A/Prof David Brown from Adelaide Law School. The webinar was co-hosted by the Ross Parsons Centre for Commercial, Corporate and Taxation Law at Sydney Law School and the Banking and Financial Services Law Association’s academic committee.
Secondly, I’m speaking at an INSOL Academics Group webinar next Wednesday 8pm (AEST; 11am GMT) on Australia and Singapore’s insolvency law reforms responding to COVID.
