Today was the Opening of the Legal Year 2020 for Malaysia. This annual ceremony would see speeches delivered by the heads of the Attorney-General’s Chambers, the Malaysian Bar and the Judiciary.
The Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tan Sri Tengku Maimun binti Tuan Mat, set out in her speech the upcoming reforms to the judicial system. I cover nine of the areas below, ranging from limiting appeals on interlocutory applications, environmental law provisions and the full digitalisation of courts.
This feature covers the range from an anti-arbitration injunction, stay of winding up proceedings pending arbitration to a setting aside of an interim measure in aid of arbitration. The cases below will refer to the Arbitration Act 2005 (AA 2005).
As 2019 draws to a close, I wanted to feature five interesting Malaysian company law cases during the year.
I have drawn from Malaysian decisions that advanced interesting points of law and has helped to develop company law and also the interpretation of the Companies Act 2016 (CA 2016). These cases range from the CEO’s fiduciary duty, the doctrine of a universal successor entity, and the chairman’s adjournment of general meetings.
