The panel covered the globalization of insolvency law and debt restructuring.

  • What do corporate restructurings such as Nortel, TMT and Pacific Andes tell us about the cross border insolvency process in Asia?
  • What steps must be taken and which issues addressed to manage the oftentimes complex nature of cross border restructuring?
  • Which jurisdictions – Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia — are likely to be chosen in the course of cross-border restructurings, and for what reasons?

Robin Darton is President of the Hong Kong Chapter of the US-based organisation TMA (Turnaround Management Association). TMA sponsored the Closing Cocktail at Debtwire this year.
