Webinar recording | Online | Available for purchase
“Albert offers a detailed and comprehensive presentation on how arbitration can work in this context”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 offers some drafting tips to assist in drafting arbitration clauses within shareholder agreements, trust deeds and standalone submission agreements.
