HKIAC is hosting a webinar on "Protecting your interest through interim relief from Mainland Chinese courts", as part of the Inaugural 2022 California International Arbitration Week.
The Hong Kong-Mainland China Arrangement on Interim Measures (the "Arrangement") provides an unprecedented regime for parties to foreign-seated arbitrations to access Chinese court orders to preserve assets, evidence and conduct in Mainland China. The Arrangement allows the Mainland courts to grant interim relief in aid of arbitrations seated in Hong Kong and administered by a qualified institution. Hong Kong is the only seat outside of Mainland China where parties to arbitrations may obtain interim relief from the Mainland courts.
This webinar will discuss the Arrangement as a critical tool of protecting parties' interest in Mainland China and an important consideration for the choice of dispute resolution clauses for China-related transactions. Practitioners who have experience in obtaining interim relief under the Arrangement will share their practical tips and success stories. HKIAC, the only arbitral institution that has published statistics regarding the Arrangement, will also discuss its role and practice of handling applications to the Mainland courts.
Time: Tuesday, 15 March 2022 (3:15 pm – 4:15 pm (Pacific time) / 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm (New York time)) // Wednesday, 16 March 2022 (6:15 am – 7:15 am (Hong Kong time))
