Judicial Management: Current Trend and Developments in the Law
Presenter : Mr. Ranjan N Chandran
Posted in : Company and Corporate Law
CPD Activity (1.0 credit)
About the Course
Judicial management ("JM"), which came into force in Malaysia on 1 Mar 2018, is a corporate rescue management mechanism that seeks the aid of the Court to save an ailing company from the threat of winding-up in the event that legal proceedings are commenced for any breach of contract. It is for this reason that JM is sometimes regarded as an alternative to winding-up, so as to provide solace to troubled companies hoping to seek a moratorium from legal actions, including the enforcement of legal proceedings. It is hoped that JM will afford ailing companies an opportunity to continue as a going concern and ensure their continued survival and existence. JM will be on the rise with the current and post COVID-19 pandemic.
This session will cover the salient principles of law to bear in mind, applicable provisions of the law, and the analysis of the salient case laws decided on JM. It will also cover the current trends on court decisions and developments in the law of JM.
