  1. Law on Carriage of Goods By Sea - 3rd Edition

    After the second edition of this book was published in 1994, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act was amended to give the Hague-Visby Rules the “force of law”. This brought the Singapore position on the effect of these Rules in line with UK law. Furthermore, the effect of the provisions of the Bills of Lading Act (“BLA”), and the corresponding UK statute, namely, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992, has been explained in many cases in Singapore and the UK. Since the last edition, other aspects of the law on carriage of goods by sea have also been clarified and there have been many important judicial pronouncements on the effect of the Hague Rules and the Hague-Visby Rules.

  3. Annotated Guide to the Singapore Insolvency Legislation

    Singapore’s insolvency and debt restructuring framework has undergone tremendous change in the last decade. From the incorporation of elements of the US Chapter 11 bankruptcy regime and adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, to the restriction of the application of ipso facto clauses, these reforms ensure that the regime continues to remain responsive to the needs of debtors, creditors and the economy.

     

    With the coming into force of the Insolvency Restructuring and Dissolution Act 2018 in July 2020, the Act consolidates the personal and corporate insolvency provisions, previously found in two separate statutes, into a single piece of legislation. This also represents the culmination of various phases of legislative reform – building on earlier amendments to the now repealed Bankruptcy Act and Companies Act.

     

    As Singapore’s principal insolvency legislation and one of the largest standalone bills introduced in Parliament, Annotated Guide to the Singapore Insolvency Legislation – Corporate Insolvency provides detailed commentary on the various provisions in the Act in a simple and clear manner. This includes references to case law, comparable legislation and law reform recommendations.

     

    Authored by the persons who worked on the Act, this offers an authoritative and comprehensive account not only for insolvency professionals, but also anyone seeking a starting point to better understand the Act.

  5. Corporate Governance - Practice and Issues (2nd Ed)

    The second edition of Corporate Governance – Practice and Issues is a book on corporate governance written in a practical manner and intended to provide guidance to directors, executives, managers, company secretaries, professional advisers, including lawyers and auditors. It draws on the three decades of experience of the author in the field of corporate governance, stressing the single most important element of integrity, the courage to act on that integrity and basically to do the right thing in the right way at all times. This edition updates the law over the last ten years, and discusses the evolution in corporate governance and whether there has been an improvement.

     

    Taking an out-of-the-box approach, the book (a) looks at the history and evolution of corporate governance over the last three decades; (b) discusses environmental social governance; (c) studies the division of power in the company, looking specifically at whether it is the shareholders, the management or the Board, whether as a whole or through individual directors, who wield power; (d) discusses the traditional concerns about director roles, duties, responsibilities and ensuing liabilities, and the importance of transparency achieved through disclosure and more; (e) reviews the board committees, the need for them, the roles they play and their effectiveness; (f) studies key issues relating to remuneration, the entitlement issues, and how it is to be set; (g) reviews internal control and risk management issues and how these should be handled; and more.

     

    Also included are practical discussion points, and a dedicated chapter focusing on nominee directors and the issues that plague them. Another unique aspect of the book is a chapter dealing with governance concerns of the boards or councils of statutory bodies, which are typically regulated by Acts of Parliament.

     

    The recurrent theme in the book is that corporate governance is not just about structures and processes, but about having the right people do the right thing through the right means all of the time; that is, the structures and processes may be the building blocks of corporate governance, but it is the collection of individuals who provide the foundation.

  6. [Bundle] Technology Regulation in the Digital Economy (Print + Digital)

    The digital economy is an integral part of our daily lives. We spend a significant amount of our time on social media services, e-commerce marketplaces and other online apps and platforms, but how much do we know about the policies and regulations that keep us safe and businesses honest? Additionally, the ubiquity of data-driven technologies, such as online search services, digital advertising and artificial intelligence, has prompted the need for regulations to safeguard consumer interests and expectations of privacy. As data is also an asset and important input for innovation and competitiveness, business-to-business tensions over access to and use of data are starting to froth.

    Legal professional privilege is of fundamental importance to both providers and users of legal services, but remains in many respects a technical and often overlooked area of law. The comprehensive treatment afforded to the subject in this book makes it a valuable resource for all practising lawyers, in-house counsel, courts and arbitrators, both in Singapore and in other common law jurisdictions.

     

    This second edition is revised and updated to reflect the 2020 Revised Edition of Acts, the new Rules of Court 2021 and the Singapore International Commercial Court Rules 2021, as well as a number of important local and international judgments handed down since the publication of the first edition.
