June 2022
Asian Business Law Institute

This is a collection of short write-ups on indemnity and liquidated damages clauses in select common law jurisdictions covered by ABLI in its Contracts Project.

The Contracts Project aims to produce standard-form contract terms that are valid in a majority of Asian jurisdictions and that allocate risks in a relatively balanced manner to both sides, so that costs that are unnecessarily incurred in contract negotiation can be saved. More information can be read here.

ABLI’s Contracts Project covers the following jurisdictions and governing laws:

Civil law jurisdictions: China, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam

Common law jurisdictions and governing laws: Australia, India, Malaysia, Singapore, English law and New York law

Hybrid jurisdiction: The Philippines

This Collection includes all the common law jurisdictions and governing laws listed above.
