Singapore and Malaysia Insolvency Cooperation Protocols

15 October 2021 – The Global Restructuring Review reported on the historic Singapore-Malaysia court-to-court communication protocols in cross border insolvency matters.

Our partner, Lee Shih, was quoted in the article and he welcomed the protocols.

"A more universalist approach and open communication between the countries' insolvency courts will bode well for a more beneficial restructuring for all stakeholders. I continue to see an increasing number of cross-border insolvency matters involving Singapore and Malaysia, and the protocols will benefit some of the matters that I am involved in. I hope that this opens the door for the Malaysia Court to further participate in more cross-border insolvency initiatives, such as the Judicial Insolvency Network."
