The American Bar Association publishes article by Aquilina Law in its annual “Year in Review”!

The American Bar Association (ABA) has just published an article by Martin Aquilina and Vicky Li in the International Law Section’s annual publication, “The Year in Review.” The chapter, appropriately named ‘International Contracts’, was a joint endeavour with other members of the ABA international contracts committee and discussed significant international legal developments of 2021 in the areas of international and cross-border contracts and the interpretation and application of related transnational conventions.

Aquilina Law’s contribution to the chapter dealt with the noteworthy case of HMB Holdings Ltd. v Antigua and Barbuda, a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision about companies “carrying on business” in Canada – a case which furthers the debate on what many refer to as “ricochet judgements.”

While the Year in Review is not available to non-members of the ABA, Martin had previously written about the case during at the first appellate stage and had suggested that the case had potential to be heard by the Supreme Court.
