The global financial crisis will likely bring about an increase in situations where arbitrators, counsel and those involved in arbitration will come across the issue of insolvency. It could be something as basic as to what extent insolvency should be a ground or factor to order security for costs for the claim. Alternatively, the issues could be more fundamental, such as would the arbitration agreement survive insolvency or to what extent would arbitration get superseded by the insolvency dispute resolution process (e.g. to file a proof of debt).
A selection of issues surrounding the impact of insolvency on arbitration will be examined during the seminar. For more details or to register, please click here.
