Mark Yu Kee La Brooy
Insolvency litigation being his principal practice area, Mark advises and appears in Court for creditors, stakeholders of distressed companies and insolvency specialists on issues concerning corporate rescue, schemes of arrangement, judicial management, informal debt restructuring and liquidation.
Of late, with the airline industry severely affected by the Covid-19 global pandemic, Mark has been in Court representing creditors of AirAsia X Berhad in respect of its proposed scheme of arrangement pursuant to the Malaysian Companies Act 2016.
In addition, Mark is involved in advising on the Malaysian law aspects of the debt restructuring arrangement of Malaysia Airlines and its related companies, which arrangement relates to their operating and finance leases as well as associated aircraft and engine maintenance contracts. This matter is significant as the application for the arrangement was made to the High Court in England and not a High Court in Malaysia and is the first case of a Malaysian corporate group applying to the English High Court under new English companies legislation to implement a debt restructuring arrangement. Our clients are the foreign creditors of the Malaysian applicants.
Mark is also experienced in the area of Competition law, having represented clients in proceedings before the Competition Commission of Malaysia and the Competition Appeals Tribunal.TERTIARY QUALIFICATION
