Can foreign arbitral awards be enforced in China? On which grounds can awards be challenged? Are arbitration clauses considered separable from the main contract?
If you work in international arbitration, your contracts contain arbitration clauses, or even if you simply do business in or with China, these questions and others may have crossed your mind at some point. For the fourth consecutive year, DaHui recently had the honor of providing answers and insights for one of the world’s leading arbitration portals, Global Arbitration Review (GAR), in their annual commercial arbitration report. Arthur Ma, Sharon Yang, and Zhizhou Dai from our arbitration team authored the extensive China chapter of this resource.
Our chapter is essentially an FAQ about Commercial Arbitration in China, covering the legal infrastructure, arbitration agreements, commencing arbitration, appointing the tribunal, interim relief, procedure, awards, costs and interest, challenging awards, enforcement, and further considerations across 51 common and less-common questions. If you have even a passing interest in arbitration or PRC law in general, this report is a must-read.
You can read the report for free on Global Arbitration Review’s website, along with answers to the same 51 questions for dozens of other jurisdictions.
