The Conflict of Laws in Hong Kong is an authoritative and comprehensive guide to the body of law which governs the approach of the Hong Kong civil courts to the selection of governing law and the determination of jurisdiction in cases with a cross-border element (including mainland China and Taiwan as well as foreign countries).
The Hong Kong courts' approach was originally based on English law but has diverged enormously as a result of statutory changes and a strong body of Hong Kong case law. As a result, it can be very hard for even a specialist to work out the precise position under Hong Kong law for example the author includes a chapter on Exceptions from Ordinary Principles.
Hong Kong's importance as a global financial centre makes this text an essential reference for all lawyers involved in cross-border transactions in contexts as varied as commercial deals, litigation, family law, insolvency, trusts and estates.
