Partner Scott Atkins and senior associate Jonathon Turner acted for Mitchell Mansfield of Borelli Walsh Singapore in a successful appeal before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) in relation to an application under the new statutory scheme for registration as a liquidator. Reasons for the decision were handed down on Tuesday.

The appeal raises significant issues about the new regime following the reforms introduced by the Insolvency Law Reform Act 2016, and is the first case before the AAT where the operation of the new regime has been considered.

We will be releasing a comprehensive analysis of the decision shortly.
