Talk on International Arbitration

Dr Colin Ong, QC and our partner, Olivia Kung delivered a talk on International Arbitration at the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce on 15 January 2019.

The aim of the talk was to provide the local business community and lawyers who are unfamiliar with this important area of law an opportunity to understand the potential dangers of failure to understand doing business with foreign joint venture partners both within and outside Hong Kong.

The talk served as a useful platform to allow interaction between the attendees and the speakers and there were many relevant questions raised as to why international arbitration is a better alternative in resolving disputes in international trade and with partners from different countries.

It also allowed the attendees to understand how to draft certain arbitration clauses into their agreements and how to select arbitrators and international counsel in dealing with different types of subject area disputes.
