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 the necessary information. 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 online version provides an enhanced level of currency and contains all the features of the looseleaf version together with intuitive online functionality, real time law in force and references to case law linked to, eg, FirstPoint as well as the full-text Thomson Reuters law report/ judgment and the PDF version of the report. Integration with other Thomson Reuters online publications is also available ( dependent on subscription profile).
