Chasing the Money: Part One Pre-dispute asset tracing

Today the global economy is more closely intertwined than ever before, with parties taking advantage of free movement of capital to easily transfer assets across jurisdictions. The ability to "chase the money" is all the more important, especially in cross-border dispute resolution proceedings involving multiple legal systems, parties and complex corporate structures.

The first of this two part seminar* will provide a comprehensive overview of how asset tracing can be used to shape a dispute resolution strategy at the early stages, and equip participants with the tools to make sound business decisions when faced with a dispute.

Arbitration and the need for speed

HKIAC is pleased to be a co-organiser of this event.

Efficiency is always a factor to consider when choosing a dispute resolution mechanism in commercial contracts. At the seminar, we will take a look at the practical effects of increased speed in arbitration. We will also explore whether fast track arbitration is approaching the limits of due process – how much can an arbitration be expedited whilst still protecting the parties’ right to present their case?

We are delighted to invite lawyers practising in commercial dispute resolution to a highly relevant seminar on arbitration and efficiency.
