Welcome to the inaugural issue of Singapore contentious commentary. In the first edition of a quarterly publication, we look at important or interesting decisions made by the Singapore courts in the second quarter of 2018 (April to June).
During this period, the courts have grappled with a wide range of issues including directors' liabilities, questions of civil procedure, decisions with consequences for the shipping and construction industries, as well as the hot topic of data privacy and confidentiality. There were also a number of interesting developments in international arbitration and the first foreign judgement enforced under the Hague Convention, reflecting Singapore's status as a global hub for dispute resolution.
