Arbitration of Shareholder and Trust Disputes

Shareholder oppression disputes are notoriously protracted and acrimonious. Private arbitration offers a viable and desirable alternative to traditional court proceedings for the resolution of such disputes.

Albert Monichino will seek to establish that shareholder oppression (and trust) disputes are arbitrable, by reference to recent Australian cases as well as leading cases in the Asia-Pacific region. He will then make the case that such disputes should be arbitrated and not litigated. To conclude, he will offer some drafting tips to assist in drafting arbitration clauses within shareholder agreements, trust deeds and standalone submission agreements.
