Vietnam Court Tactics

    Avoiding legal traps in settlement negotiations

    In litigation, you will almost certainly be involved in settlement negotiations at some point. However, most people, when approaching settlement negotiations, usually focus solely on how to get the best deal and forget to keep their guard up in the event negotiations fail.

    “Governing Law” and “Jurisdiction” Clauses

    In previous e-bulletins we have looked at a number of clauses that are commonly found in commercial contracts but are often poorly drafted and misunderstood. This month we discuss two more: “Governing Law” and “Jurisdiction”.

    Labor & Employment

    Employee Service Contracts vs. Labor Contracts

    In order to avoid the obligations of social insurance, health insurance and unemployment insurance towards their employees, as well as to avoid being subject to liability as provided by the labor law, many companies propose that their employees sign contracts for the provision of services instead of labor contracts.
