Drafting a Disputes Resolution Clause? Hong Kong’s unique advantages

With the growing connectivity between Mainland China and Hong Kong under the Greater Bay Area initiative, the number of arbitrations arising from cross-border investments is set to increase.

Paul Starr, Partner and Practice Leader HK DR/Infrastructure and Joint Coordinator International Arbitration Team, discusses the benefits of the new Interim Measures Arrangement launched in October 2019 and his involvement in the first-ever asset preservation order from the new Shanghai Financial Court under that Arrangement for a Hong Kong arbitration.
