We’re delighted to confirm that Dr Rosemary Langford‘s monograph, Director’s Duties: Principles and Application has been cited by the High Court of Australia in ASIC v Lewski [2018] HCA 63, at fn 69. Very well deserved. The case involved civil penalty proceedings by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (“ASIC”) against five directors of a failed aged care and retirement trust, and concerned whether they breached their duties when they amended the trust’s constitution.

If you are interested in further details about the case, Katy Barnett at Opinions on High has written a summary here.
