Appellate Division of the High Court Clarifies Civil Standard of Proof

04 Nov 2022

In Ma Binxiang v Hainan Hui Bang Construction Investment Group Ltd [2022] SGHC(A) 37, the Appellate Division of the High Court held that Courts should not adopt a “binary approach” of deciding between the plaintiff’s case and the defendant’s case without considering the possibility that the plaintiff has failed to discharge his burden.

Director Foo Yuet Min and Senior Associates Wilson Koh and Tan Yifan successfully acted for Mr Ma in this appeal.
