Environmental law versus insolvency law

And the insolvency practitioner in between!

Mark Wellard, Legal Director at ARITA, will discuss the issues surrounding the interaction of State environmental law and Commonwealth insolvency law and its effect on insolvency practitioners, including:  

  • Queensland’s ‘Chain of Responsibility’ environmental laws, the accompanying statutory guideline and ARITA’s related advocacy; 
  • The recent Queensland Supreme Court decision in Linc Energy and its potential implications for insolvency practitioners;
  • The use of the power of disclaiming property in the context of environmental issues and practical insights from a recent NSW bankruptcy where these issues arose.
The forum will provide attendees with both policy and practical perspectives on an issue which is becoming more prevalent for insolvency practitioners.
