Insolvency laws in the time of COVID-19: Australia & Singapore
Wednesday 27 May, 11.00 - 12.00 BST (GMT+1)

INSOL International was delighted to start its series of Academic Live Forums with Aurelio Gurrea-Martínez, Assistant Professor of Law at Singapore Management University and Jason Harris, Professor of Corporate Law at the University of Sydney Law School.

This Live Forum focussed on two important jurisdictions, Australia and Singapore. We discussed the Australian decision to suspend creditor enforcement and insolvent trading laws, as well as the changes to Australian corporate law aimed at assisting companies during the pandemic, such as online meetings and amended reporting obligations. We also considered Insolvency reforms that have taken place in Singapore as a response to the crisis, including insights into the role and limits of Singaporean insolvency law during and after COVID, including how Singapore has performed compared to other jurisdictions.
