Tort law has evolved rapidly since the first edition of this book was published in 2011. New torts have emerged, existing ones have been redefined, and important clarifications have been made regarding the scope of specific torts and doctrines. These developments are detailed in this second edition, with notable cases including See Toh Siew Kee v Ho Ah Lam Ferrocement (Pte) Ltd (occupiers’ liability), Anwar Patrick Adrian v Ng Chong & Hue LLC and AEL v Cheo Yeoh & Associates LLC (solicitor’s duty of care), EFT Holding, Inc v Marinteknik Shipbuilders (S) Pte Ltd (unlawful means conspiracy), and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (Publ), Singapore Branch v Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) Pte Ltd (vicarious liability). The book also examines the scope and impact of new statutory torts introduced by the Protection from Harassment Act and Community Disputes Resolution Act 2015. As in the previous edition, a comparative perspective is provided by considering relevant developments in other leading Commonwealth jurisdictions.
