Dispute Resolution

China

If you have a problem that requires legal action, our team can assist you in analysing risk, managing disputes and seeking constructive solutions and settlement. CMS´s sector-focused lawyers are not just litigators or arbitration specialists but business-minded problem solvers.

If you want your dispute to stay out of court or arbitration, we can guide you tactically in achieving this. We routinely act as counsel in arbitration proceedings in commercial and international disputes, including investment arbitration. Our partners also regularly act as arbitrators.

One of the biggest risks you may face is the threat of an external investigation amid allegations of corporate wrongdoing. Our specialists can support you 24/7 through sensitive investigations by criminal and regulatory authorities, including negotiating settlements where appropriate.

According to Chinese law, as a foreign law firm we are not allowed to represent our clients before Chinese People’s Courts. For such litigation proceedings, we cooperate closely with local Chinese law firms who represent our clients directly before the courts. With our cooperation with local Chinese law firms, we also assist our clients in enforcing judgements and arbitral awards in China to be enforced through the Chinese People’s Courts.

Using our global experience and local knowledge, we can safeguard your interests before state courts, arbitral tribunals and in alternative dispute resolution. With over 400 lawyers in 34 countries, we can handle your dispute across any European jurisdiction, obtain judicial assistance in foreign proceedings and deal with enforcement procedures for international judgements and arbitral awards.
