Welcome to LexisNexis® new thought leadership series – This Is My MASTERCLASS. This series of virtual events aims to facilitate advanced thinking at the intersection of law and technology, drawing on subject matter experts in the field.

The theme of the first complimentary webinar is The impending insolvency crisis and its impact on the legal profession. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, both the insolvency law landscape and broader environment in which the laws operate have changed drastically. Our panellists will discuss how lawyers can adapt to the changes as the demand for legal services in insolvency is set to rise.

The panel discussion will be held by some of the leading minds in the legal and technology space:

Greg Dickason

Managing Director of LexisNexis Pacific

Dr Pamela Hanrahan

Professor of Commercial Law and Regulation, Deputy Head of School (Research), UNSW Business School

John Winter

CEO of the Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association (ARITA)

Tom Read

Practical Guidance Legal Writer – Insolvency, LexisNexis Pacific

The panellists will draw on advanced thinking around insolvency, discussing topics including but not limited to:

  • Will the expected tsunami of insolvencies be realised?
  • What choices are directors of insolvent companies likely to make in this environment?
  • Temporary suspension of liability for insolvent trading
  • Temporary changes to statutory demands

The event is hosted on the International Day of Democracy to highlight the importance of technology in legal development of the world. Join us in this masterclass! You can help shape the future of the legal sector by raising questions directly with our panellists!
