First practitioner title in Singapore to focus on the interpretation of contractual terms.

Written by the leading expert on this subject, find a structured and comprehensive discussion of all aspects of contractual
interpretation in Singapore within this title. Key decisions by the courts are analysed together with references to relevant

on which terms to use and which to omit.
