GRR Volume 3 Issue 2
Exactly one year on from the ambitious Companies Act amendments that introduced Chapter 11-style improvements to its restructuring regime, Singapore welcomed GRR Live for our first-ever event in the city-state. Debates between panel and delegates were the liveliest we’ve seen yet, with speakers discussing academic and real-life issues, such as how secured lenders feel about Singapore’s new debtor-in-possession financing rules; whether adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency without reciprocity is counterproductive; and if Singapore has erred in failing to restrict the operation of ipso facto clauses where a scheme is proposed. While GRR was there, local and international firms, the government and the Singaporean judiciary all threw their doors open to our new deputy editor Douglas Thomson, who left no stone unturned in producing a detailed survey of the revamped regime and its reception so far. The survey looks at the names to know locally, from lawyers to insolvency practitioners and judges, and examines recent jurisprudence that caused waves in the Lion City. I think it’s fair to say that, after such a intensive look, we’ve definitely got Singapore “worked out”.
