Singapore law is increasingly being chosen by international businesses.
As a common law system based on English law, Singapore law has the hallmark of predictability and certainty. At the same time, Singapore law is progressive and well adapted to the needs of commerce. These distinct advantages make Singapore law a suitable choice of law for international transactions.
Singapore is also highly attractive as a venue for international dispute resolution. It has dedicated institutions for litigation, arbitration and mediation such as the Singapore International Commercial Court, Singapore International Arbitration Centre and Singapore International Mediation Centre.
This seminar will provide an overview of Singapore law and legal institutions in Singapore. It will also illustrate the practical application of Singapore law in commercial transactions, as well as contentious cases in court, arbitration and mediation. For an international flavour, a Japanese and New York-qualified lawyer will speak on his experiences using Singapore law in his cases and transactions.
