August Newsletter

Welcome to the August edition of our Industry Insights and e-News.

It’s no surprise technology is continuing to play an increasing role in the way businesses operate, but with new advances many traditionally paper-based processes can now be digitalised for greater efficiency. This month, we provide some insights into the digitalisation of bank guarantees and the positive impact they may have on commercial property leasing transactions by curbing inefficiencies.

Our Commercial and Property Law Associate, Elicia Lin, takes a look at a recent retail case where the tenants were in dispute with the landlord over demolition works and their claim for compensation. This decision will have implications for landlords and tenants who are parties to retail shop leases.

For our overseas and multinational clients, we highlight some of the key sectors that are continuing to position Australia as one of the leading destinations for foreign investment.

Special Counsel, Michael Sing examines the recent decision of Lifeplan Australia Friendly Society Limited v Ancient Order of Foresters in Victoria Friendly Society Limited [2017] FCAFC 74. The decision is a stark and practical reminder of the risk in taking on new employees who promise to bring business and work from their former employer.

Finally this month, what happens when the intentions of the testator are not reflected in the will? Following a recent case, we take a look at the rectification of Wills.
