|John Lord will lead Jirsch Sutherland's|
push north by opening a Brisbane office
Lord and the corporate regulator clashed a few years back in the wake of the Premium Collections affair.
Opting to relinquish his official liquidator status before ASIC got pushy, the former head of what was PKF's Sydney insolvency and restructuring division retired, pointed The Liquidator - his beloved aquatic pleasure vessel - north, and settled on the Gold Coast.
Now SiN hears Lord is set to open a Brisbane office, a move that represents a big step in Jirsch Sutherland's east coast expansion ambitions and a major comeback for one of the profession's more engaging characters.
