On September 7, 2021, Noppramart Thammateeradaycho, counsel in Tilleke & Gibbins’ dispute resolution group, will be a panelist in a webinar about how alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as arbitration function in relation to bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings. Titled “The Interplay between Insolvency Proceedings and International Arbitration,” the webinar is jointly sponsored by the Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC) and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) as part of the THAC International ADR Webinar Series and Thailand ADR Week 2021.
Joining Noppramart on the panel will be arbitration experts and professionals from Thailand and abroad. Together they will discuss the conflicts that frequently arise between international arbitration and insolvency law, as arbitration typically seeks to uphold agreements to settle disputes exclusively through arbitration regardless of the position of the contracting parties, while insolvency law aims to distribute the assets of the insolvent party between all creditors through a centralized process. The panelists will address how this tension plays out across the world, giving attendees a view of the experiences of arbitration practitioners from different jurisdictions and the challenges they have faced in relation to insolvency proceedings.
The webinar is free to attend and will be held from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. ICT (UTC+7). For more details, please see the event registration page.
