My Article in Asian Legal Business

The January 2013 issue of Asian Legal Business contains my micro-article Asia: Different Contracts, Different Cultures. It discusses the mixture of “cultures” of contract drafting in Asia. Go here for a PDF copy.

This article represents the first time I’ve acted as a pseudojournalist, quoting some sources, including friends of the blog Mark Anderson and Andrew Godwin.

Cunningly placed under the article is an ad for my 21 February seminar in Singapore. I’m delighted that the response in Singapore has been enthusiastic. My Hong Kong seminar still has a ways to go, but it’s two weeks later, on 5 March. Go here for the brochure. If you know of anyone in Hong Kong who would benefit from a rigorous approach to contract language, rather than simply recycling the conventional wisdom and whatever verbiage comes to hand, please send them a link.
