Corporate Market Overview, Queensland 2016

The more things change the more they stay the same, it seems in a corporate law context.  Whilst the general economic and legal landscape in Australia remains one dotted with themes around “innovation”, “digital disruption” and the provision of alternative fee structures/fixed fee, blended rates, outsourcing, insourcing and spin-out “no frills” law firms, it is perhaps somewhat comforting that the key legal developments in corporate law over the past 12 months focus on more familiar concepts of continuous disclosure, association between shareholders as well as pronouncements in relation to pre-bid statements both in support of and to reject potential takeover bids.

In this recent Corporate Market Overview published by Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession; Michele Muscillo, Michelle Eastwell and Katherine Hammond provide a précis of corporate law developments that occurred over 2015.
