  • proposed changes to internal dispute resolution systems

Moving on to the real estate sector, we feature:

  • the new duty regime in Victoria and why developers, fund managers and financiers need to tread carefully
  • lease incentives and defaulting tenants
  • the expanded foreign land tax surcharge in Queensland.

We also feature the new whistleblowing protection regime and a regulatory round‑up across the funds management industry.

Finally, 2019 sees us celebrate our 25 year anniversary with our clients and our team. In acknowledging this significant milestone, we will share some of our history and recent deals with you in each edition of Fundamental.
