International Arbitration

Our international arbitration attorneys work with clients to resolve complex disputes arising from expanding trade and investment around the world.  Our attorneys bring the highest level of trial skills, strategy, and industry knowledge to international arbitration.  We are experienced at navigating through the complex – and sometimes conflicting – statutes of various nations governing the enforcement of agreements to arbitrate and the enforcement of arbitration awards.
We have a global reach that give our clients the benefit of local knowledge and procedural expertise.  Our China based international arbitration lawyers have experience in representing businesses, investors, and State parties in disputes arising under international law and investment treaties.  We have experience before all major arbitral institutions and arbitration rules and are members of the Dubai International Arbitration Centre, the International Bar Association, and the International Section of the American Bar Association.  Our experience includes:

• International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
• International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID)
• American Arbitration Association (AAA)
• International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR)
• London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA)
• Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC)
• UNCITRAL Rules arbitrations
Our China based international arbitration lawyers are experienced in a wide range of industry sectors, including automotive, oil and gas, aviation, construction, energy, financial services, franchise and distribution, immigration, life sciences and biotechnology, manufacturing, public utilities and telecommunication, and real estate development.  We regularly provide counsel on drafting dispute resolution provisions, and on alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as mediation.

Our lawyers offer clients assistance, representation and advice at all stages of the arbitration process. This includes pre-arbitral negotiations, the conduct of arbitral proceedings, advocacy at trial, and the challenge and enforcement of arbitral awards. We also appear before national courts to prosecute or defend applications for interim measures in support of arbitration, such as injunctions, attachments and orders preserving evidence. Members of our team also act as arbitrators and expert witnesses.

China business is now an important factor and component of the world economy. More and more Chinese companies and individuals are involved in international arbitration. Our strong point is that we speak both Chinese, Cantonese and English, which make us to communicate and work efficiently and smoothly among different work settings.
