The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law recently played host to Chris Symes, Associate Professor and Deputy Dean at the Adelaide Law School, Australia, who visited the Centre on 6 May 2015. Chris is a specialist in Australian corporate and insolvency law, being the co-author of the seminal texts Australian Insolvency Law and Corporations Law In Principle. Chris came to academia from practice, having trained as an accountant and commercial lawyer, and has kept his links to the professional world, serving as a member of an accounting professional body's disciplinary tribunal as well as maintaining links to the Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association (ARITA) and the Insolvency and Reconstruction Committee of the Australian Law Council.

At Adelaide, Chris is the Co-Director (with Associate Professor David Brown) of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Law Scholarship Research Unit, the first such unit dedicated to insolvency law research in Australia. In that capacity, Chris hosted a visit from Paul Omar, a member of the centre, at an event in 2013 marking the 20th anniversary of the introduction of rescue in the form of the voluntary arrangement procedure in Australia. While on this return visit, Chris met with Paul Omar, Professor Rebecca Parry and Dr Wendy Akpareva for a discussion on the prospects of insolvency law reform in Australia and the United Kingdom.
