This chapter covers the choice of law issues involving corporations. It looks into the provisions of the Companies Act 1967 which addresses foreign-incorporated companies and the re-domiciliation of foreign-incorporated companies under Singapore law. Lex incorporationis or the law of the place of incorporation governs questions such as whether the corporation exists or who has the right to sue in the name of the corporation. Moreover, this law also handles issues of corporate governance and the internal management of a company. The chapter also elaborates on the choice of law rule governing the piercing of the corporate veil.
