Court proceedings in breach of agreements to arbitrate remain common in many parts of Asia.  As a result, the anti-suit injunction is an important tool for commercial arbitration counsel. The panellists at this seminar will consider the legal and practical issues arising in relation to anti-suit injunctions in the region including the powers of courts, arbitral tribunals and emergency arbitrators.

  • HKIAC’s Next Top Model Clause

    Confused about this season's latest trends? Unsure what would look best in your arbitration clause? This is understandably so. Courts in several leading centres of international arbitration, including London, Singapore and Hong Kong, have recently taken divergent approaches to the core issue of the law governing the arbitration agreement. For users of arbitration, this development raises the possibility of dissimilar outcomes depending upon the approach taken by the courts where an arbitration is seated. Don't be seen with last year's clause – join our expert panel in breaking down the cases in order to examine the practical impacts of recent decisions, and explore their views on the steps the HKIAC has taken – and what arbitration users can do - to proactively manage this developing risk.
