    What's new in this edition

    Control of Exemption Clauses Ordinance (Cap 71)

    • New detailed commentary on the principles governing the proper identification and interpretation of exclusion clauses, and the importance of distinguishing “exclusion clauses” from “basis clauses”.
    • The issue also brings in the Annotated Ordinance of Cap. 23, Cap. 457 and Cap. 623 by considering recent cases and updates the commentaries thereto.

    Misrepresentation Ordinance (Cap 284)

    • Discusses cases concerning the relationship between misrepresentation claims based on the Ordinance and those under the common law, e.g. on whether an action can be brought against a party not privy to the contract, and on whether damages in lieu of rescission is possible under the Ordinance if a common law bar against rescission is established. Specifically highlighted are cases Lim Yi Shenn v Wong Yuen Yee [2015] HKCU 219 (unreported, HCA 1323/2010, 29 January 2015); and Salt v Stratstone Specialist Ltd [2015] EWCA Civ 745.
    • Updates the commentary on the controversial Hong Kong case law on the distinction between "basis" and "exclusion" clauses in the misrepresentation context Particularly highlighted are Yang Dandan v Hong Kong Resort Co Ltd [2015] 6 HKC 126, Li Kwok Heem John v Standard Chartered International (USA) Ltd [2016] 1 HKC 535, DBS Bank (Hong Kong) Ltd v Sit Pan Jit [2016] 5 HKC 104 and Chang Pui Yin v Bank of Singapore Ltd [2017] 4 HKLRD 458, [2017] HKCU 1817.
