Decades of experience, unique insights in Arbitration
As a hotspot for global investments, Hong Kong’s institutional strength and legal framework ensures its status as the ideal seat of arbitration for deals involving international parties, and Chinese Mainland parties in particular.
Our Hong Kong international arbitration practice offers greater strength and depth than any other firm in this market and is widely recognised by clients, peers and industry leading publications in the region.
In addition to our knowledge of local laws and customs, our practitioners venture all over the world to represent parties on commercial, infrastructure, energy, TMET and other major arbitrations.
Members of our Global International Arbitration (IA) group are qualified in nearly 20 different jurisdictions and speak more than 14 languages, with experience conducting ICC, ICSID, LCIA, HKIAC, CIETAC, SIAC, DIAC, AIAC, ADCCAC, KCAB, TAI, THAC, BANI, VIAC, and BIAMC arbitrations.
We bring a truly global perspective and provide access to a powerhouse practice for clients spanning all sectors to all our matters.
We understand China like no one else
We are unmatched in China-related disputes, representing Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and other parties in major international arbitration matters.
Our unique strength to practice the laws of the PRC, Hong Kong SAR and other international laws allows us to strategise cross border disputes, prepare and execute arbitration, litigation, and enforcement plans for Hong Kong and China Mainland.
We have an integrated practice with 14 offices in China, as well as strong teams in the UK, Europe, Australia, Singapore, Japan, the Middle East and the US. Clients are increasingly looking to our network of offices to provide necessary cross border advice and insight.
Forefront of the evolving international arbitration landscape
There are very few firms with our depth of cross border dispute resolution insight. We were consulted by PRC government authorities on policy and legal developments involving Hong Kong and China Mainland reciprocal judicial cooperation.
We are also amongst the first successful applicants to make use of the reciprocal arrangement on interim measures in aid of arbitrations between the Mainland and Hong Kong.
These are the kind of matters that demonstrate our capability, cutting edge application of the law and ability to think outside the box.
