Hand in Hand - Why Strong Legal and Judicial Systems Strengthen (rather than weaken) International Arbitration
Mode: Online / In-person (Venue: N201, HKCEC)

International arbitration has always been touted for its benefits over litigation for cross-border disputes. In particular, such benefits include confidentiality, party autonomy, flexibility, enforceability worldwide, and, of particular importance for parties conducting business with lesser-known jurisdictions, neutrality. This panel will take a look at why strong legal and judicial systems are not reasons to avoid arbitration but, in fact, complement and strengthen the use of international arbitration as a means of resolving cross-border disputes. Topics to be discussed include the positive impact of national legislations for international arbitrations, the legal framework and relevant developments for international arbitration in leading jurisdictions, and how strong judicial systems support and enhance the use of international arbitration for cross-border disputes.
