- The Court distinguished Supreme Tycoon from Lord Sumption’s obiter dicta in Singularis noting that the key is whether the foreign proceeding was “a process of collective enforcement of debts for the benefit of a general body of creditors.”
- The mere fact that the foreign liquidation was voluntary did not bar the Hong Kong Court from recognition and assistance under the principle of modified universalism.
