Webinar (26 August 2021): Cross-border dispute resolution in Asia Pacific

Content updates

Ambitious businesses grow by tapping into global markets. While doing business overseas can be very rewarding, it presents significant legal risks that need to be managed. In particular: how, and where, will any disputes with your foreign counterpart be handled? Whose law will govern your relationship? And if there is a dispute, do you have a realistic chance of enforcing any judgment awarded?

Join Anna Kirk of Bankside Chambers Limited, Auckland and Edward Taylor of Shearman & Sterling LLP, Hong Kong for a webinar with Practical Law writers Abigail Milburn, Shan-Ree Tan and Bryan Jung where they discuss:

  • An overview of international dispute resolution options and framework in the Asia Pacific region, in particular, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
  • How to prepare effective dispute resolution clauses.
  • Comparing litigation and arbitration.
  • Similarities and differences in procedures and technical aspects such as third party funding and interim measures.
  • Pros and cons such as finality, appealability, and costs.
  • Enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral decisions.
  • A case study of a business selling into a foreign market: evaluating different dispute resolution options available.

A complimentary dispute resolution toolkit curated by Practical Law's subject matter experts will be shared with webinar attendees, highlighting relevant Asia Pacific resources available on Practical Law's site.
