SIAC Malaysia Webinar: The Interplay Between Arbitration and Insolvency: Perspectives from Malaysia and Singapore
The interaction between insolvency law and arbitration is an ever-developing area, especially when commercial businesses are increasingly globalised with parties coming from different jurisdictions. When a party is involved in restructuring or insolvency proceedings, it will inevitably affect its counterparty’s recourse under the arbitration agreement or in existing arbitration proceedings. The issues become more complex when the arbitration is seated in a foreign jurisdiction as different countries may have different insolvency laws and public policy considerations.
This topic is now more relevant than ever with the current global economic downturn, with many companies under financial stress and some having to consider restructuring.
In this webinar, our specialist speakers from Malaysia and Singapore will cut through the complex interplay between insolvency and arbitration, explain how insolvency proceedings would affect parties’ claims and ongoing arbitrations in these jurisdictions, discuss recent court decisions on this topic such as the Singapore Court of Appeal decision in AnAn Group (Singapore) Pte Ltd v VTB Bank (Public Joint Stock Company)  SGCA 33, as well as provide practical guidance for parties to navigate through the arbitration process if their counterparty is undergoing insolvency proceedings.
