Our regular column updates for this issue of IHC Magazine:
Fake news is ubiquitous on social media platforms and this is particularly a concern in Philippines were an estimated 72% of citizens receive their news via social media. We hear about the dangers of this, current laws which might apply to libellous posts, and legislative developments that are needed (ACCRALAW).
In this issue of IHC Magazine, we also cover orders from the British Virgin Islands Commercial Court on enforcement of judgments originally delivered by the Court of the People’s Republic of China, demonstrating the jurisdiction’s pro-enforcement approach (Carey Olsen).
On M&A, we take a look at the consequences of structuring share deals and asset deals interchangeably in Vietnam (Global Vietnam Lawyers). We also learn more about the special purpose acquisition company, its role in raising capital and the jurisdictions in which it might best be based, including Hong Kong and Singapore (Maples Group).
Chung Jin Chung of KOGAS talks to us about building an inspiring career, thinking out the box, and keeping your feet on the ground. We also hear from Daryl Chew of Three Crowns and chair of the board of Maxwell Chambers, who makes the case for alternative dispute resolution and leaves us with some succinct words of wisdom.
We also cover last month’s top deals, partner level moves, and latest legal industry news.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
