The Possibility of Transplanting Western Bankruptcy Principles to Oman

  •  Saleh AlBarashdi    


This article investigates the extent of possible transplantation of some western bankruptcy principles to Oman. Such principles include the concept of rescue culture, the notion of ‘cram-down’, imposition of stay on secured creditors’ claims and the concept of ‘debtor-in-possession’. It demonstrates the fact that since the start of the legislation path in Oman in 1973, Oman tends to transplant some legal western concepts and such transplantation is accepted. However, the author supports the view that before transplanting foreign principles it is crucial to assess their workability and functionality to avoid the risk of rejection.
