The Derivative Action in Asia and Beyond: A Conflict of Laws Perspective

Session Synopsis:

In this globalized world, corporations and their shareholders often exist in multiple jurisdictions with corporate laws that are not always consistent with each other. We increasingly encounter situations in which corporate law issues also engage problems of conflict of laws. This panel comprises two academic speakers from the National University of Singapore, one from the University of Tokyo, and several leading practitioners who have expertise and experience in both corporate law and conflict of laws. We will discuss recent developments in the derivative action in key jurisdictions in Asia and Europe from a conflict of laws perspective, and offer cutting-edge, practical suggestions for tackling live and emergent issues.
