We are pleased to be presenting a webinar titled “Equitable Liens & Insolvency Statistics” and welcome registrations to attend this online if you are unable to attend in person in Auckland on Tuesday 8 August 2023.

We welcome Iain McLennan and Keaton Pronk, insolvency practitioners from McDonald Vague Limited, who will be presenting on Equitable Liens & Insolvency Stats

Recent decisions have lead to a change in how equitable liens affect secured creditors in an insolvency process in relation to their rights in any partly-purchased, bespoke and identifiable goods.

Iain McLennan and Keaton Pronk will look at the decision and its implications. They will cover what an equitable lien is, how it helped the purchasers of stock in an insolvency process, and where to from here. They will also look at the latest insolvency stats for personal and corporate around winding up applications and appointments.

 About our presenters:

Iain McLennan has over 30 years’ experience in business recovery and insolvency. The best days in his professional life are when distributions are being paid to creditors. He is a Licenced Insolvency Practitioner accredited by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and a member of NZCFI (The New Zealand Credit and Finance Institute) and GRIP.

Iain has extensive experience in technical liquidations and receiverships for companies in a wide variety of industries including finance, e-commerce, software development, property development and construction, and manufacturing. He has successfully provided advice to numerous liquidators on recovery actions, particularly actions against directors involving fraud and reckless trading.

Iain has also conducted investigations and has provided expert evidence in cases of suspected corporate fraud and in matrimonial proceedings.

Potentially most importantly in the 2023 economic environment, he has significant experience providing “work out” and recovery advice as an alternative to the formality of receivership/liquidation.

Keaton Pronk is experienced with both personal and corporate insolvency and deals with both small to large sized businesses. He has experience in a number of industries including hospitality management, retail, entertainment, fashion and construction.

Prior to joining McDonald Vague Keaton worked for the MBIE Insolvency and Trustee Service as a Principal Insolvency Officer and held a Deputy Assignee warrant.

Keaton is a Chartered Accountant, Licenced Insolvency Practitioner, a member of RITANZ and INSOL International.
