The rapid growth of arbitration in Hong Kong – which is increasingly recognised as a leading arbitration centre – and mainland China has transformed the landscape of dispute resolution in the region. But while arbitration is often an efficient and cost-effective way of resolving disputes, it is still important to have professional advisors who understand the system, appreciate your priorities and can negotiate forcefully on your behalf.
At Deacons, our lawyers will provide you with a clear sense of direction at every turn, advising on the best strategy and guiding you through the practicalities of the process. We work closely with domestic and global businesses, government organisations, and foreign law firms, to assist clients who are parties to arbitrations under the HKIAC and CIETAC rules, as well as those of major arbitral bodies such as ICC, UNCITRAL and others. In addition, members of the team are regularly retained as arbitrators in Hong Kong and the PRC.
Once an award has been made, we can also assist with enforcement action where appropriate, or with proceedings to challenge an arbitral decision.
If you would like more information on how we can help you with any aspect of arbitration proceedings, please feel free to get in touch.
