Recent Cases in Fraud Litigation: Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore

I will be one of the speakers for the webinar on Recent Cases in Civil Fraud Litigation: Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore on Thursday 10 June 2021.

It is the first jointly organised webinar by the Bar Council Malaysia and the Law Society of Singapore. This is a free webinar but only open to members of the Malaysian Bar and to the members of the Law Society of Singapore.

The brochure is here and with registration for Malaysian Bar members here.

The webinar will discuss recent developments in civil fraud litigation from the perspective of Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. It aims to provide a clear overview of emerging patterns in case law — particularly in relation to doctrines such as the constructive trust and vesting order and highlight contemporary controversies and their impact on litigation strategy in pursuing civil fraud litigation.

I join Yvette Anthony from Osborne Clarke Singapore speaking from the Hong Kong law perspective, Professor Tang Hang Wu for Singapore law, and Idza Hajar Ahmad Idzam of Zul Rafique & Partners who will moderate our panel discussion.

From the Malaysia law aspect, I will cover several areas including:

  • Strategising the launch of civil fraud litigation.
  • The emergence of the persons unknown jurisdiction for injunctive relief and the Spartacus self-identification order.
  • Fraud issues concerning cryptocurrency.
  • Parallel civil fraud and criminal investigations.

Look forward to hearing from my fellow speakers and then discussing cross-border issues at the panel session.
