RESTRUCTURING OF LARGE ASIAN COMPANIES IN FINANCIAL DISTRESS
Time & Location

Webinar on Zoom
About the event
It is widely accepted that the goal of restructuring law for companies in financial distress is to minimize the agency costs of restructurings, which arise due to frictions from the relationships among creditors and shareholders and also among creditors. In the last two decades, several jurisdictions around the world have reformed or are considering reforming their insolvency and restructuring laws in order to promote legal regimes that are conducive to restructuring of economically viable companies but in financial distress. Many jurisdictions, including significant economies in Asia, have court-supervised restructuring frameworks that are drawn from the United States (US) Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code and/or the United Kingdom (UK) schemes of arrangement.
Focusing on the case studies of four Asian jurisdictions, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mainland China and India, which have transplanted to various extends the US-/UK-style systems, Prof Wan will address how the legal transplantation has worked well or not in view of the differences in stakeholder relationships between US/UK and the Asian jurisdictions.
