Abstract

Discusses East Asia Co Ltd v PT Satria Tirtatama Energindo (PC), clarifying the circumstances under which a third party was prohibited from relying on the doctrine of ostensible authority as they knew a company's agent lacked actual authority. Reviews the objections to earlier "practicality" arguments, and the extent to which the court's approach to constructive notice and the unreasonableness threshold represents a return to orthodoxy.

Keywords: corporate law, corporate liabilities, agency law, corporate contracting, ostensible authority
