Haldanes contributed to the Standard Clauses “Boilerplate” Agreement: Hong Kong published by UK Thomson Reuters

We are proud to announce that Partner John McLellan, Associate Weiken Yau, Trainee Solicitors Patrick Lui and Vanessa Wong contributed to the Standard Clauses “Boilerplate” Agreement: Hong Kong, a 3-part Q&A published by Thomson Reuters in the United Kingdom and circulated internationally.

The Q&A is part of Thomson Reuters’ new Boilerplate International Transaction Guide, which offers practical and jurisdiction-specific guidance on the application of Thomson Reuters’ boilerplate clauses. Haldanes addresses the Hong Kong section of the Q&A, covering a number of legal and practical issues surrounding the practical usage of boilerplate and essential clauses of commercial agreements in Hong Kong, such as parties, interpretation, variation, severance, counterparts, indemnity, termination, waiver, notices, force majeure, assignment, confidentiality and dispute resolution.

Haldanes is among various top-tier law firms to contribute to this publication. Our Commercial & Media team is experienced in advising corporate and individual clients on a broad range of commercial and corporate issues from M&A and joint ventures through to company formations and structuring.


The Q&A and Thomson Reuters’ boilerplate clauses are now available on the Thomson Reuters Practical Law website at https://uk.practicallaw.thomsonreuters.com/Browse/Home/Global?__lrTS=20170815030440657&transitionType=Default&contextData=(sc.Default).
