Asia’s role in leading the global economic recovery and the associated shift in investment activity from West to East is contributing to a golden age of arbitration in Asia. Hong Kong, Asia’a premier location for dispute resolution, is increasingly playing host to the resolution of some of the most complex and diverse disputes today.
Join us to explore the short and medium term trends experienced by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) in the cases it handles, as we look back over the past five years of development and consider what this foretells for the future.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to watch some of Asia’s leading legal minds go head to head with their American counterparts, as they seek victory in a mock arbitration conducted under the new 2013 HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules (the 2013 Rules). The ability to effectively and efficiently manage complex arbitrations is a key differential between the current collection of leading institutional rules. Enjoy a lively demonstration of the application of Article 28 of the 2013 Rules and how issues of consolidation play out in practice.
