Experience / Litigation & Arbitration
Legal disputes are one of the greatest concerns for any company doing business in China. At MWE China, we provide creative advice and effective client representation in matters tried in domestic courts, at arbitration hearings and in negotiated settlements. Our lawyers are recognized for their legal excellence and deep, pragmatic experience in Chinese and international litigation, arbitration and administrative proceedings. We have represented leading corporate and financial institutions in a range of major matters before courts, arbitration tribunals and administrative agencies across China.
We regularly appear on behalf of our clients in Chinese arbitration proceedings, as well as in front of major international arbitration institutions such as the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, the Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce, the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre and the London Court of International Arbitration. Our lawyers have experience arbitrating a broad range of commercial disputes, including those relating to commodities, distribution, finance and real estate. We also have experience arbitrating under the international arbitration rules of the leading institutional and trade associations.
Our team provides coordinated solutions in complex, cross-border litigation that involves a wide range of commercial and regulatory issues. We frequently manage multi-jurisdiction litigation and, through our strategic alliance with McDermott Will & Emery, regularly team with international lawyers to find solutions in those lawyers’ home courts. We also recognize the importance of conveying unfamiliar legal concepts, business practices, technological and scientific information, and cultural issues in a manner that local courts, in China and abroad, will most easily understand.
