We are pleased to announced that our article on Technology and Outsourcing Hot Spots has been published in the second edition of the Korean Arbitration Review (“KAR“). The KAR is published by the Korean Commercial Arbitration Board (“KCAB“), which is the only official recognised arbitral institution in the Republic of Korea.
Our article looks at the issues involving pre-contractual negotiations and misrepresentations and provides an overview of the extent of losses that parties may suffer as a result. We also examine boilerplate clauses (entire agreement clauses and limitation of liability clauses) and the extent to which under Singapore and English law, such clauses can mitigate and avoid the risks associated with pre-contractual negotiations and misrepresentations. Finally, we explore the manner in which ADR (whether arbitration or mediation or a combination of both) is particularly suited to resolving infocomms disputes as opposed to litigation.
