On April 18, 2019, Hazmat Management Magazine re-published Una Radoja’s article Environmental Liability Risk Faced by Directors of Dissolved Companies – Getting around the Gehring Defence. In this article, Una Radoja discusses the implications of the recent Tundra decision. How the Tundra case serves as a reminder to lawyers advancing cost recovery claims to look at dissolved corporations and their directors and officers, and the need to apply for restoration in a timely manner. And for lawyers defending these claims, and restoration applications, finding prejudice, beyond the mere loss of the Gehring defence, will be key. The article was first published in the BC Environmental Industry Association (BCEIA) April 2019 newsletter and can be read here. Una is a partner with Harper Grey, and co-chair of our Environmental Law Group. If you have any questions relating to the article, please contact Una Radoja at firstname.lastname@example.org.
