The Tai Hing Conundrum : Estoppel, Contract or Tort?

Denis S. K Ong, Macquarie University

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to examine the competing legal principles in the type of situation exemplified in Tai Hing Cotton Mill Ltd v Liu Chong Hing Bank Ltd and Others (hereinafter Tai Hing). It will be suggested that the outcome of a dispute in a Tai Hing situation turns on the application of the principle that is ultimately applied. The search for this principle should commence with an analysis of the principal cases in this area.
