Thomson Reuters is very pleased to welcome Edmund Finnane to his new role as General Editor of the Company and Securities Law Journal (C&SLJ), taking over from the late Professor Robert “Bob” Baxt, who was the Founding Editor of the Journal. Edmund is a barrister at Thirteen Wentworth Selborne Chambers in Sydney and a Director of the Commercial Law Association of Australia.
Edmund earned his Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws at the Australian National University, and completed his Master of Laws at the University of New South Wales. Before coming to the Bar in 1997, he was a solicitor with Madgwick Partners. He practises in a wide range of areas, with special relevant interests in insolvency, company, general commercial law and equity.
Edmund is the co-author of the books Pleading Precedents and Equity Practice and Precedents, the 2019 edition (2nd) of which is to be published shortly. He has also had articles published in the Law Society Journal and the Commercial Law Quarterly, and has been writing annotations for the Corporations Legislation volumes of Thomson Reuters since 2010.
The first issue of C&SLJ produced under Edmund’s stewardship, Vol 36 Pt 4, is now available.
We look forward to working with Edmund on future issues of the C&SLJ and wish him all possible success as General Editor.
