Drawing upon the contractual doctrine of freedom of contract and public policy reasons justifying the judicial intervention in the enforcement of demand guarantees, this book considers the extent to which judicial intervention, through exceptions to the principle of autonomy, can be recognised and justified.
The author provides a comparative examination of the relevant legal position in Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka, with detailed analysis of the extracts from leading cases and the International Chamber of Commerce Uniform Rules for Demand Guarantees (URDG 758).
