Asian Conflict of Laws: East and South East Asia
An essential resource for both practitioners and academics, Asian Conflict of Laws: East and South East Asia, provides a comprehensive overview of the various approaches to private international law among the crucially important trade jurisdictions of East and South East Asia.
Gain expert guidance from local specialists who deliver thorough commentary and analysis on fourteen jurisdictions of the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam. With a lack of legal harmonization between these countries, this useful book will be an essential resource for both practitioners and academics operating in this region.
The authors describe, in a clear and logically structured way, practice and procedure regarding:
- codification of private international law and relevance of case law;
- jurisdiction of local courts in foreign-related cases (including choice of court and arbitration clauses);
- applicable law;
- international civil procedure; and
- recognition and enforcement of foreign (judicial and arbitral) decisions.
How will my practice benefit from Asian Conflict of Laws: East and South East Asia?
- Gain practical guidance for non-Asian companies on international litigation and enforcement of foreign decisions in East and South East Asian trade jurisdictions.
- Valuable resource for practitioners handling commercial matters in East and South East Asia.
- Provides a major step forward in the ongoing academic and policy endeavors to coordinate efforts in harmonising private international law.
Asian Conflict of Laws: East and South East Asia, edited by Alejandro Carballo Leyda, is primarily designed to increase the knowledge of non-Asian companies on the specific frameworks regulating international litigation and enforcement of foreign decisions in the region, and will thus be of great practical value to corporate counsel and other practitioners, officials, and policymakers. In addition, it takes a major step forward in the ongoing academic and policy debate to coordinate efforts in harmonising private international law in the region.
