The availability of the security of payment regime to insolvent claimants

Wednesday 27 Mar 2019
5:30 pm for 6:00 pm start
Level 27 Chambers, Level 27, 239 George Street, Brisbane

The recent unanimous decision of the New South Wales Court of Appeal in Seymour Whyte Constructions Pty Ltd v Ostwald Bros Pty Ltd (in liquidation) [2019] NSWCA 11 has rejected the Victorian Court of Appeal position that an insolvent contractor cannot be a claimant under Security of Payment legislation and described the Victorian precedent as “plainly wrong”. King & Wood Mallesons acted for the liquidators of Ostwald Bros in both the Equity Division and Court of Appeal proceedings.

This seminar will consider the decision of the NSW Court of Appeal, and analyse the implications for other Australian jurisdictions.
