The December edition of the Australian Restructuring Insolvency & Turnaround Association (ARITA) journal includes a feature article, authored by members of ABL’s renowned litigation practice who represented the Liquidators of Arrium, exploring the impact of the decision by the NSW Supreme Court in proceedings brought by creditors of the Arrium group.
