HKIAC Council

The HKIAC Council is comprised of a broad representative body of both domestic and international users, private practitioners, arbitrators and in-house counsel.  Those who are lawyers are from both civil and common law backgrounds. Coming from a variety of jurisdictions and sectors, HKIAC Council members reflect HKIAC's increased focus on addressing users’ needs and gaining direct input from in-house counsel.  With a wealth of knowledge and experience of dispute resolution, the HKIAC Council advises the Secretariat on policy direction and other general management.
