The HKCCA’s Executive Committee invites you to the following presentation, hosted by Troutman Sanders.
Food and drinks will be provided. 1 Law Society of Hong Kong CPD Point has been accredited.
TOPIC: Cross-border Trade Litigation
Arguments are always inevitable among different individuals. In order to resolve their disputes, people have found a way in settling them – handling over their power to a court as their decision maker. However, it also consumes a longer period of time and a larger amount of money, which often poses a higher cost to both parties. Alternative dispute resolutions are therefore formed.
On a more frequent scale, many corporate entities resolve their disputes by way of arbitration. The major concern was its enforceability in foreign jurisdictions. In any event, Hong Kong is one of the, if not the, most popular jurisdiction to settle disputes by way of arbitration. In this course, we shall discuss different arbitration rules common in Hong Kong and in particular, the UNCITRAL Model Rules.
Apart from arbitration, this seminar will also focus on mediation, in particular, the different methods of mediation and the normal process.
Finally, this seminar will also discuss the general High Court Civil Procedures Rules and in particular the enforceability of the Hong Kong judgment overseas. We shall further discuss such enforceability of the Hong Kong judgments in China and vice versa.
