Reaching Beyond the Obvious – Recent Developments in Piercing the Corporate Veil, Non-Cause of Action Defendants and Hard Cases: Petrodel v Prest, Mahakam and Ablyazov

Recent developments in England have shown the Court’s enthusiasm to throw the net wide in the fight against fraud (the recent Ablyazov litigation) but otherwise to be more restrictive in respect to piercing the corporate veil (Petrodel –v- Prest) and Non-Cause of Action Defendants (Mahakam).

Duncan Matthews QC and Sara Masters QC will consider these recent developments and applications of some of them in Singapore (notably in Manuchar Steel Hong Kong Limited v Star Pacific Line Pte Ltd). The talk, in association with SIArb and chaired by Mr Leslie Chew SC (KhattarWong LLP) will take place at 12pm on Tuesday, 18 November 2014.
