Monica Feria-Tinta in conversation with former Attorney General of Singapore V.K Rajah SC and H.E. Dato’ Mohammad Ariff at ASIA ADR Week 2019

Monica Feria-Tinta will be joining former Attorney General of Singapore V.K. Rajah SC and other panelists, discussing “Public Policy as a Shield: Enforceability of Contractual Obligations” at ASIA ADR Week 2019 (AIAC) on 28 June.

The panel will address the question: with the lines between the public and private continually being blurred, how can private commercial parties enforce their contractual rights against a government when the latter reneges on their obligation on the basis of their sovereign right to regulate public policy? This session will also seek to explore the disparate nature of international law and consider the position of the sovereign state that has to renege a contract for the benefit of their people.

H.E. Dato’ Mohammad Ariff (Speaker of the House of Representatives, Parliament of Malaysia and Retired Court of Appeal Judge of Malaysia) will be moderating the panel. The panel will also be comprising Elodie Dulac (Patner, King & Spalding, Singapore, LLP), Caroline Kenny QC (President, Charter Institute of Arbitration (Australia) and Robert Volterra (Volterra Fietta).
