Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) and Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office hosted a joint seminar on 28 June at 10:00 Eastern Daylight Time via Zoom.
Experts discuss recent developments in Hong Kong and HKIAC's role in international arbitration. According to the Queen Mary University of London and White & Case International Arbitration Survey, HKIAC is the third most preferred arbitral institution and Hong Kong is the third most preferred seat in the world. Hong Kong enjoys a unique role as the conduit between China and the rest of the world in terms of business and dispute resolution. Given the complexity and challenges of recent times, speakers disscuss whether users remain confident in Hong Kong as a seat of arbitration.
Speakers include Patrick W. Pearsall, Partner at Allen & Overy, Candy Nip, Director at Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Sarah Grimmer, Secretary-General at HKIAC and David W. Rivkin, Partner at Debevoise & Plimpton; Co-chair at HKIAC.
