The rules relating to contractual formation are easy to state but difficult to apply in the varied circumstances of practice. It is therefore helpful that the recent Court of Appeal decision of R1 International Pte Ltd v Lonstroff AG  SGCA 56 (“R1 International”) provides much guidance in this area of the law.
R1 International concerned whether a set of terms to arbitrate in Singapore, found in a detailed contract note sent by the appellant to the respondent shortly after their deal (“the deal”) was concluded, was incorporated as part of the contract between the parties. The answer to this issue would determine whether the High Court was correct in dismissing the appellant’s application for a permanent anti-suit injunction.
