About the Programme

Arbitration and litigation are areas which are commonly subject to preference. But which one is truly fit for purpose, serves its stakeholders (especially the parties) most effectively, which has greater predictability of outcomes, and represents the best value for money? These and other questions will be explored in a gloves-off debate where no sitting on the fence will be allowed, with opportunities for participants to engage with (and challenge) the speakers.


Putting the case for arbitration: Mark Mangan, Miranda Elvidge – Dechert LLP
Putting the case for litigation: Thio Shen Yi SC, Monisha Cheong – TSMP Law Corporation
Moderator: Celeste Ang - Principal, Baker & McKenzie.Wong & Leow


Debating topics include:

  • Domestic vs international disputes – is one more suited to litigation than the other
  • Jurisdiction – how it is established, its breadth and reach, including joinder and consolidation
  • Applicable laws and rules – imposed by the state v party autonomy
  • Rules of evidence and document production – getting to the truth
  • Available remedies – can arbitrators match the power of the courts
  • Procedural fairness and rules of ethics – getting the balance right
  • Time and cost – including current and emerging funding options
  • Public vs private – the importance of being discrete
  • Finality vs appeals – what do parties really want
  • Enforcement
