Counsel Edward Taylor (Hong Kong-International Arbitration) co-authored an article titled “Crypto Winter Disputes: Navigating the Intersection of Crypto, Arbitration and Insolvency” for the IBA Arbitration Bulletin’s October edition.
The article provides an overview of the current state of the crypto disputes landscape, which arises at a novel intersection of crypto, arbitration and insolvency, following the “crypto winter.” It identifies legal and practical factors that creditors should consider when faced with financially distressed crypto counterparties, including in the context of parallel arbitration and liquidation proceedings.
The authors conclude that an increasing number of crypto disputes are likely to arise over the coming months with creditors and their lawyers needing to rapidly implement creative strategies across multiple jurisdictions to secure successful outcomes.
Edward Taylor regularly publishes and speaks on crypto dispute issues.
