Morrison & Foerster partner Sarah Thomas will be speaking on the “Insolvency and international arbitration” panel at the virtual GAR Connect Singapore event on August 24, 2021. The panel will discuss how to tackle challenges arising from tension between possible insolvency proceedings and arbitration if government support for struggling companies facing mounting debt is reduced.

Moderated by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the panel discussion will focus on:

  • Whether an increase in insolvency proceedings will allow arbitration to pierce the corporate veil
  • The importance of governing law in COVID-19 related disputes
  • Outcome-based funding – Different avenues for funding a dispute

In-house counsel and government representatives are welcome to attend this Zoom event on a complimentary basis.
