  2. Arbitration in Singapore

    Arbitration has over recent years become the preferred mode of dispute resolution among parties entering into cross-border transactions, providing a flexible and efficient mechanism for the resolution of disputes between parties from different legal and cultural backgrounds. As Singapore continues to grow and position itself as a centre for dispute resolution, not only locally and regionally, but also internationally as a centre of arbitration and mediation excellence, arbitration has thus become one of the fastest growing areas of law in this country. 

    Arbitration in Singapore: A Practical Guide is a comprehensive how-to text guide written by the practitioners for practitioners. The book discusses the role of the Singapore court during and after arbitration, providing guidance on when the court can intervene in proceedings, enforce, and entertain a challenge to an award. Each stage of arbitration is explained clearly, from the appointment of the tribunal and its powers, to the relief and remedies it may award. It covers the key features of arbitration agreements and examines the subject through expert commentary and analysis.

  3. The Law of Torts in Singapore (2nd Ed)

    Tort law has continued to develop apace in the intervening period since the first edition of the book was published in 2011: new torts have emerged, existing torts re-formulated, and important clarifications made on the scope of specific torts and doctrines. These developments are captured in this second edition, salient examples of which include See Toh Siew Kee v Ho Ah Lam Ferrocement (Pte) Ltd (occupiers’ liability); Anwar Patrick Adrian v Ng Chong & Hue LLC and AEL v Cheo Yeoh & Associates LLC (solicitor’s duty of care); EFT Holding, Inc v Marinteknik Shipbuilders (S) Pte Ltd (unlawful means conspiracy); and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (Publ), Singapore Branch v Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) Pte Ltd (vicarious liability). The scope and impact of new statutory torts introduced pursuant to the Protection from Harassment Act and Community Disputes Resolution Act 2015 are also examined. As with the previous edition, a comparative view is offered by considering, where relevant, new developments in other leading Commonwealth jurisdictions.
