Alternation Dispute Resolution - China

Resolve your disputes quickly and effectively

King & Wood Mallesons represents global businesses as well as major Chinese state-owned enterprises and private companies on arbitration and mediation matters. Whatever your business, our lawyers provide you with creative alternative dispute resolution programmes and non-litigious dispute resolution methodologies.

Sometimes litigation may not be the best answer. Where this is the case, we offer a wide range of options to resolve disputes outside the courts. These alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms cover mediation and conciliation, and arbitration. In China we also regularly use other, more bespoke processes to resolve disputes.

Our market-leading contentious regulatory practice aims to minimise your risk profile and offer practical and commercial solutions when you are involved in disputes. We regularly represent clients in China on the most complex and important investigations.

We actively pursue all avenues to resolve disputes and advise clients on choosing the method most appropriate to them and to a particular matter. Our main priority is to resolve disputes quickly and effectively with as little disruption to business as possible.

We represent clients including multinational corporations, major state-owned enterprises, private companies and financial institutions on matters of alternative dispute resolution law. We advise on:

  • Arbitration
  • Mediation
  • Adjudication
  • Mini-trials
  • Negotiations and bespoke resolution processes.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
