Melbourne Insolvency Forum Conference – Tokyo, Japan – 23-27 August 2017

An insolvency conference, said to be a Taste of Japan.

There is a very good article in the International Insolvency Review entitled Appointing and Remunerating Insolvency Practitioners in Japan: The role of Japanese courts which is no doubt on the conference agenda.

There is another article, about to be published, looking at the Australian insolvency reforms from a Japanese insolvency perspective.

And there have also been a number of cross-border insolvency matters, in particular in shipping, concerning Japanese law: see for example Yakushiji v Daiichi Chuo Kisen Kaisha (No 2) [2016] FCA 1277.

Also, Japan has adopted the Cross-border Insolvency Model Law.
