Capabilities

Arbitration

Overview

Not all disputes need to end up in court. We have vast experience in arbitration – a practical and cost-effective alternative method of settling a wide range of civil and commercial disagreements. Arbitration offers privacy, since proceedings and decisions are kept confidential, as well as greater flexibility and less formality.

Our arbitration team is led by Senior Partner Colin Cohen, whose proficiency in this field has seen him admitted as a Fellow of the Hong Kong Institute of Arbitrators and as a member of the Panel of Arbitrators of the Law Society of Hong Kong. Crucially, Hong Kong is widely recognised as an international centre for arbitration and the process is strongly supported by the courts.

We are well versed in other methods of settling disputes including mediation, in which parties work towards an agreement, and negotiation. With our guidance, we help clients reach mutually satisfactory outcomes which offer more chance of compliance and better preserve relationships.

Peace at last for sisters who ‘didn’t exist’

By Wendy Kwan Hong Kong, 11 January 2021: It is hard to believe that a significant number of people in Hong Kong have never had their birth registered. It means they exist without a birth certificate and are forced to live life under the radar with no ID card or passport. They cannot attend school […]

We are still not learning our lessons

Hong Kong, 6 January 2021: Welcome back to my weekly missive, I hope you all had a pleasant festive season.
