Overview of Singapore’s law reforms & impacts for Australia

Restructuring, insolvency and turnaround professionals worldwide have recently had to come to grips with the realities of legislative overhaul. The Netherlands, Germany and India, to name a few, have all embarked on significant reform programs, in addition to Australia’s own recent efforts. But the jurisdiction that has probably been the most ambitious in its endeavours is Singapore.

In May 2017, Singapore enacted new laws borrowing heavily from the US Chapter 11 process. In doing so, Singapore announced its intention of becoming an international hub for restructuring.  

Join Dentons Senior Partner Herman Jeremiah, and Partner David McIntosh as they examine the key aspects of the Singapore reforms, which include, adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law, DIP or Rescue Financing, expanded jurisdiction and cram down.

They will also examine how Australia stakeholders, such as lenders and creditors, may find themselves drawn into a Singapore-led restructuring.
