My Practice

 I was also the solicitor and counsel for one of the named parties in the “Winebox” Commission of Inquiry which ran for over a year in 1996. 

       

In May of 2004 I appeared as  senior counsel in the Privy Council and was able to obtain judgment against the third party funder of an insolvent party who had brought unsuccessful legal proceedings. This is currently the leading case on this topic in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. (See Dymocks Franchise Systems (NSW) Pty Ltd v Todd (No 2) [2005] 1 NZLR 145).

 

I  advise a number of New Zealand and overseas based security holders on their rights under the Personal Properties and Securities Act.

Besides addressing Insol on PPSA issues I have also written articles and given seminars on how businesses can protect themselves from bad debt - seehttp://www.management.co.nz/Advice.asp
