Breach notices and remedial action notices should be taken seriously and acted on immediately. Whilst this may sound obvious our litigation team has been surprised in recent times at how some managers who receive such notices treat them – sometimes ignoring them and sometimes delaying doing anything about them until it is too late.
Due to our widespread involvement in such matters our litigation partners Ben Seccombe and Mitchell Downes have extensive experience in dealing with such notices. They have an enviable record of getting managers receiving such notices out of trouble. Their job though – and a manager’s prospects of avoiding adverse consequences – is much harder if there are delays in contacting them for advice.
If you do find yourself in receipt of such a notice or in the midst of a dispute with the committee, be proactive and consult with us immediately. That way we – and you – have the best chance of achieving the best outcome.
