The 1958 New York Convention Hot Topics and Recent Developments

In 2010, UNCITRAL requested the assistance of two experts, Professor Emmanuel Gaillard and Professor George Bermann, to prepare a Guide on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, 1958 (New York). The Guide, which was presented to the Commission in July 2016, aims to promote the uniform and effective interpretation and application of the Convention with a view to limit the risk that State practice diverge from its spirit. It is supplemented by a freely accessible online platform – newyorkconvention1958.org – which includes over 1800 decisions from multiple common law and civil law jurisdictions implementing the Convention.

Following the presentation of the Guide, various speakers will discuss recent trends and case law on the application of the New York Convention.

HKIAC Pre-arbitration Strategy Workshop: Maximising Recovery in International Arbitration

You are an in-house counsel, CEO or external lawyer faced with a foreign counter-party who is in breach of your, or your client’s, commercial arrangement. You have attempted to resolve the issues through informal negotiation without success. The dispute resolution clause provides for any disputes to be resolved by arbitration in Hong Kong under the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules. Before commencing formal proceedings you want to ensure the most effective strategy is adopted from the outset to maximise prospects of success and actual recovery.

This workshop brings together legal counsel, an asset recovery specialist, and a third-party funder in an early stage meeting scenario to consider the legal options available and practical steps required to formulate an effective dispute resolution strategy. Experts will consider the lifecycle of a dispute from commencement of proceedings through to enforcement and ultimate recovery. The aim is to equip attendees with the tools to make sound business decisions when faced with a potential dispute.

Attendees will also hear about the key features of HKIAC arbitration proceedings and the practical application of the tools available under the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules.
