We have built one of the few specialist arbitration practices based out of Hong Kong, a leading arbitration hub in Asia. Our team is deeply capable of handling substantial arbitrations and we are regularly referred arbitrations by, or co-counsel with, other law firms in Hong Kong and overseas. Our practice head, Darren FitzGerald, takes appointments as arbitrator.
We work in Hong Kong, SIngapore and other regional arbitration venues under various arbitration rules including those of the HKIAC, ICC, LCIA, SIAC and UNCITRAL. Hong Kong retains a distinct domestic arbitration regime and we routinely act for industry players in complex arbitrations in the construction space under domestic rules.
Our team has particular experience with Mainland China-related disputes, acting as co-counsel in CIETAC arbitrations on the Mainland and successfully obtaining and enforcing awards there and advising on enforcement in Hong Kong and abroad.
