When a company begins to experience financial hardship, it often faces conflicting interests. On the one hand, it must continue with commercial transactions to preserve, maintain and hopefully restore the company; on the other, it must respect the integrity of its creditors’ rights by not making such payments which may be seen as showing preference over other creditors.
Negligence does not entail liability unless the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care. With the expansion of the scope of duty of care since the 1960’s it is now possible to claim compensation for pure economic loss resulting from the defendant’s negligence.
Court is by no means the only way for a dispute to be heard and finalised. In accordance with the Civil Procedure Act 2005 (NSW) we are under an obligation to attempt to resolve disputes through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and negotiation prior to entering the matter into Court. Our Lawyers are experienced in ADR and expertise in successfully representing their client’s interests and concerns.
