Hong Kong Arbitration Seminar
In our increasingly globalised trading environment where parties often have – and can easily transfer – assets across multiple jurisdictions, it is particularly important to make the right decisions on interim relief when disputes first arise. Join our Richard Yip for a strategic exploration of the tactical considerations that come into play when deciding between different interim measures to deploy in arbitration.

In contrast to the regime of interim injunctions available in court proceedings, arbitrations administered by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre offer a much wider range of interim measures including emergency arbitration interim relief, injunctions in aid of arbitration by Hong Kong Courts, and measures for asset preservation in Mainland China.
From time to time, it may be necessary to apply for injunctions on an urgent basis – well before an arbitral tribunal is properly constituted or even before an arbitration is commenced. Often, injunctions may be deployed to address the imminent risk of asset dissipation on the respondent’s part, or other factors which may irreversibly disturb the status quo before the dispute is finally resolved in arbitration.
In an increasingly globalised trading environment where parties often have – and can easily transfer – assets across multiple jurisdictions, it is particularly important to make the right decisions on interim relief when disputes first arise.
What tactical considerations come into play in the process of identifying suitable interim measures? Join our upcoming seminar for a strategic exploration of:
• The emergency arbitrator regime under the Arbitration Ordinance and institutional rules
• The regime governing court-ordered interim measures in aid of arbitration
• The Mainland-Hong Kong Arrangement for asset preservation measures in aid of Hong Kong-seated arbitration
• Fundamental considerations in choosing between court injunction or emergency relief
