Authored by our International Arbitration Partners Andre Yeap S.C. and Avinash Pradhan, the chapter on “Maintaining the Policy of Minimising Curial Intervention in Malaysia” explains the legal framework for arbitration in Malaysia, a coherent modern framework in line with international norms and best practices. In addition, recent decisions of the Malaysian courts underscore the fact that the Malaysian judiciary is now distinctly pro-arbitration, paving the way for Malaysia to tap into the growth of international arbitration in the region.
