An Introductory Guide to Arbitration in Asia


The popularity of international arbitration as a preferred dispute resolution mechanism in Asia, reflecting ongoing engagement in cross-border investment across and from outside the region, has resulted in the continued development and refinement of national arbitral rules and laws across many of these jurisdictions.

This second edition of our Guide to International Arbitration in Asia covers the key elements of the arbitration frameworks in 14 key jurisdictions which have continued to attract significant investment activity. The Guide addresses commonly asked questions which global businesses should consider in connection with international arbitration proceedings in these jurisdictions and enforcement of arbitral awards across Asia.
