Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons’ practitioners have detailed knowledge of the arbitral process and a strong grasp of commercial realities.
The rapid growth of arbitration in Hong Kong, a leading arbitration centre, and Mainland China, has transformed the landscape of dispute resolution in the region. Our international arbitration lawyers are highly experienced in all aspects of arbitration – the drafting of dispute resolution procedures to be included in contracts, conducting arbitration proceedings and enforcing/setting aside of arbitral awards. We are particularly known for handling high profile, high value, multi-jurisdictional and cross-border arbitration related to commercial disputes, construction, and energy and resources disputes. We also advise clients on arbitration of disputes involving Belt and Road projects.
Members of our team are regularly retained as arbitrators themselves in Hong Kong and Mainland China, hold key positions with leading arbitral institutions and are on a number of arbitration panels. We work closely with domestic and global businesses, government organisations, and foreign law firms, to assist clients who are parties to arbitrations under the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) and China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) rules, as well as those of major arbitral bodies such as the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and others.
