Celebrating Our Principal Promotions

So when two of our graduate intake lawyers were promoted to Principal (in 6 ½ years – a exceptional achievement), we thought it was well worth gathering the team and our Brisbane-based clients for a celebration!

We’re all very proud of Leona and Nick and wanted to reward them for their incredible hard work by throwing them a great party. We invited the whole team as well because we strongly believe that looking after our clients and each other takes a team effort.

It was wonderful that Leona and Nick’s families could join us as well.

Held at The Hyatt’s Hibiscus Room, we enjoyed canapes and free flowing drinks overlooking the pool area and the city skyline. We partied long into the night, but the video producer only captured the early part. Probably best as there were a number of Principals who hit the dance floor – and not just Nick and Leona! Congratulations Nick, Leona and the whole team, and thanks to those clients who came along to celebrate with us.

82 years on, the ‘wives special equity’ law is still a valuable case to call on

82 years on, the ‘wives special equity’ law is still a valuable case to call on

On 15 September 2021, the District Court of New South Wales handed down a judgment in Hume Plasterboards v Best Interiors[1] which reaffirmed the ‘wives’ special equity’, otherwise known as the Yerkey v Jones[2] defence. Even though the ‘wife’ (or de facto partner) of the company’s director signed a guarantee, the successful use of the defence meant that she was not liable for the debt incurred.


Important Lessons for Guarantors

Important Lessons for Guarantors

In the recent Court of Appeal case of Rowe v Metroll SA Pty Ltd[1] a guarantor (the appellant) was unsuccessful in arguing that he was not liable to the respondent under a guarantee that he signed in 2018. His two primary grounds of appeal were around the law of agency and the wording of the guarantee.

The case provides valuable lessons for businesses to ensure they have an effective credit agreement and guarantee and indemnity in place, and to individuals when executing a guarantee and the obligations contained within it.
