Hong Kong is often seen as the gateway to China. Alongside this key function in world trade, Hong Kong also acts as a regional hub for dispute resolution and finance for the Asia Pacific region. It is important that any business works with advisers who understand the interplay of local and international laws, and the cultural nuances of doing business in Asia.
CMS has been active in Hong Kong and the wider Asia Pacific region for many years supporting clients across the full spectrum of dispute resolution, financial transactions, corporate, commercial and M&A. With a network of 71 offices across 40 countries, we combine international experience from across our global network with an in-depth understanding of local laws to help clients make a success of their business in Asia.
Our dispute resolution team has a particular focus on international arbitration. We advise across all industry sectors and key local and international arbitral institutions. Clients come to us for our broad experience in complex commercial arbitration, investment and infrastructure disputes.
