This highly practical service is your desktop reference to the methods of investigation and enforcement used by ASIC when performing its regulatory functions under the Corporations Act and ASIC Act. A full explanation of ASIC’s powers, including ASIC’s investigative powers, ASIC’s powers to conduct administrative hearings and court proceedings, together with practical guidelines, commentary on the relevant law and ASIC guidelines, are provided to ensure you have all the necessary information at your fingertips. There is no other service available in the market explaining the powers of ASIC to investigate the affairs of the company.

Tom Middleton has made this difficult area of law easy to understand. This is particularly critical if ASIC commences an investigation or takes proceedings against the company that are not anticipated and there is limited time for lawyers to be briefed. The service has been further enhanced with the inclusion of additional practical guidelines set out in a clear question and answer form with numerous cross-references to the text. The practical guidelines concisely set out the rights and obligations of persons, including directors and company officers, who are the subjects of ASIC’s investigation, legal proceedings or administrative hearings.

The service is maintained as Law in Force. Legislation in the online service is updated as soon as possible after legislative amendments commence, providing practitioners with regularly updated legislation. The legislation currency information and status flag, above the full-text, is updated daily so that practitioners are aware of all incorporated, pending and future amendments. References to case law is linked to, eg, FirstPoint ,as well as the full-text Thomson law report/judgment and the PDF version of the report. Integration with other Thomson publications is also available, dependent of subscription profile.
