The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Ordinance – what you need to know
8:00-9:30am. The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Ordinance is expected to come into force in 2015, and will reform Hong Kong's contract law by giving rights to third parties to enforce contracts. Whatever your industry, you will need to consider the legislation. Perhaps you are already asking questions such as: 'I heard we just opt-out of the Ordinance. Is that right?" 'I wonder how we can use the benefits of the Ordinance to best effect." 'Don't think we need to worry, our contracts don't have any third parties – do they?" To have your questions answered, join us for this interactive panel discussion.
Hear the insights of industry leading lawyers from Mayer Brown JSM's Corporate, Employment & Benefits, Insurance and Litigation & Dispute Resolution practices. The panel will run through the essentials of the Ordinance, and discuss practical scenarios to help you consider what steps to take. Use this session to kick-start making a necessary change to your usual contracting arrangements.
Space is limited. Register now and join us for this interesting event.
