Long time reader, first time poster.
Ken has kindly invited me to join the exalted ranks of posters at Club Troppo, so I thought I might briefly say hi and introduce myself. Floating in a google cache somewhere under a pseudonym is the remains of my former blog, which featured a fair few inane mutterings, random commentary and rare occasions of genuine amusement with the practice of law. Most of you would never have heard of it, so don’t feel bad for missing it.
I am a lawyer in private practice, mainly in the particular area of insolvency litigation, which is also the primary focus of the doctoral studies I am currently juggling alongside my work. So I may feel prompted to comment when insolvency finds its way into the glare of media attention. Insolvency law has the distinction of being hugely influenced by the great masters of the financial failure – Skase, Bond, Ansett and One.Tel to name a few. What’s more, it constantly generates new challengers and solutions for the next generation of the notorious. So it can be a bit of fun.
