Telekom Malaysia Arbitration – Final Award

Providence Law Asia LLC, along with co-counsel Zul Rafique & Partners, successfully obtained a final award on quantum for Telekom Malaysia (“TM”), against a Singapore-incorporated IPTV services provider, Vodoke Pte Ltd (“Vodoke”). Vodoke commenced SIAC proceedings against TM for allegedly breaching a collaboration agreement, claiming damages of US$34 million. The Tribunal had earlier dismissed Vodoke’s claim in a partial award on liability and has now, in this final award on quantum, awarded TM approximately US$3 million as damages for its Counterclaim in misrepresentation.

Last month, the Providence team also successfully resisted Vodoke’s application to set aside the partial award on liability before the Singapore High Court. The final award can be found here:

The Providence team comprises Abraham Vergis, S.C., Jiaxiang Zhuo, Sze An (Niki) Chen and Kyle Chong.
