Product description

The topic of Commercial Law remains prominent in the legal system and practice in Hong Kong. Developments since 2013 have kept pace not only with the manner in which commercial law itself has been handled in Hong Kong, but also with new interpretations of the law from the UK Supreme Court, and from the High Court of Australia. Commercial Law in Hong Kong - Second Edition addresses the effect of local legislation such as the Unconscionable Contracts Ordinance and the Money Lenders Ordinance in this field of law. It also contains comprehensive commentary on recent judicial decisions to areas such as the interpretation of commercial documents, the question of liquidated damages versus penalties, and the presence of illegality and what that may mean. Commercial law is not a static area of the law; instead it is a part of the law reflective on developments in society, the needs of the community and the skill of the tradesmen of commercial law.
