Boardroom Q&A — Safe Harbour laws, what every adviser needs to know.
Some of the most significant changes to Australia’s company and insolvency laws passed through Parliament last year. Under these ‘safe harbour’ laws, directors are empowered to take steps to turn a struggling company around instead of just involving administrators at the first sign of trouble. But is the safe harbour reform all good news?
Join HHG Legal Group’s Murray Thornhill and Tim Colcutt to discuss important aspects of the safe harbour laws that directors, contractors, creditors and professional advisors need to be aware of, including:
In what circumstances can directors rely on safe harbour?
What rights and obligations do directors have during the safe harbor period?
What rights do contractors and creditors have with respect to safe harbour?
How can contractors and creditors protect their interests and get paid when a director seeks to rely on the safe harbour provisions?
