recent experience

  • former administrators validly appointed and entitled to remuneration

    Christina acted for the former administrators of a company in an application to the Supreme Court of NSW seeking orders for their remuneration. The directors of the company had commenced concurrent proceedings questioning the validity of the former administrators’ appointment and alleged that the former administrators had acted negligently. Christina worked closely with the former administrators to successfully defend the allegations against them and obtained declarations from the Court that their appointment was valid. The Court also determined that Christina’s clients were entitled to their remuneration for the work performed and awarded costs orders in their favour.

  • defence of multinational corporation facing damages claim

    Christina acted for the Australian subsidiary of a multinational corporation in defending Supreme Court proceedings. The claimant had sought extensive damages for misleading and deceptive conduct, negligent misrepresentations, breach of contract and unjust enrichment, which were denied. Christina was ultimately successful in negotiating a settlement to achieve a positive outcome for her client.
