 Do Hong Kong Courts interpret construction contracts differently? Do Hong Kong Courts recognize common sub-contract payment terms such as back-to-back or pay-when-paid? By using two recent Hong Kong High Court cases as examples, this talk will look at Courts’ approach in interpretation of construction sub-contracts and especially back-to-back payment terms.
