Why Hong Kong?

  • The Mediation Ordinance (Cap. 620) applies if mediation is conducted wholly or partly in Hong Kong and if agreement to mediate provides that Ordinance or law of Hong Kong is to apply to the mediation. The Mediation Ordinance provides a legislative framework for conducting mediation without affecting the process in order to encourage dispute resolution by mediation and ensure confidentiality.

  • Hong Kong’s close proximity to numerous technology giants in Asia allows for efficient response to the growing intellectual property demand.

  • Hong Kong is well known by its sound rule of law, attuned intellectual protection regime and acclaimed legal personnel.
