Barrister Blog & Case Law Updates

  • Civil penalties are getting bigger and less certain

    Monday, 18 May 2015

    Civil penalty provisions are now a big part of our regulatory environment – and they’re getting bigger.  They no longer affect only the top end of town.  Yet recent case law indicates there is still real uncertainty around the procedure courts are to observe in civil penalty proceedings:

    •  In a major development, recent Full Federal Court authority has cast doubt on a long-entrenched practice of ‘settling’ civil penalty proceedings by submitting joint statements of facts and submissions on agreed penalties to a Court.
    • The precise content of the obligation of fairness owed by regulators in civil penalty proceedings is still being developed.


  • Deportation and Sentencing

    Monday, 18 May 2015

    Criminal Law Barrister Paul Smallwood has written a paper titled Deportation and Sentencing - Recent amendments to the Migration Act 1958 and the impact that those amendments will have on the manner in which deportation can be taken into account as a mitigating circumstance

  • Interlocutory injunctions in IP disputes

    Monday, 04 May 2015

    IP Specialist Andrew Sykes has written a paper titled Interlocutory injunctions in IP disputes.


    Andrew Sykes paper focuses on the risks and benefits of seeking interlocutory injunctions in intellectual property matters in light of recent case law.  It also looks at the other practical options available to solicitors who need to assist client’s in urgently preventing IP infringements.  It was part of Mr Sykes’ recent presentation at LegalWises’ IP Law conference in Melbourne and is a useful guide for both IP specialists and general commercial practitioners.
