    Webinar | The ABC of Commercial Dispute Resolution in China, May 25th

    25 May 2022
      Running a business is not always smooth – particularly in these uncertain times of the pandemic which have disrupted international mobility. One of the important aspects that business managers need to be fully prepared about, is how to handle conflicts and business disputes with legal channels when needed. To investigate this and other issues, the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) will organize together with the EU SME Centre, of which we are the leading consortium partner, the webinar "The ABC of Commercial Dispute Resolution in China" to be held online via Zoom on May 25th, 2022, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This webinar will provide you with an overview of frequent disputes that could arise between European companies and their Chinese partners; it will then explain to you two major dispute resolution mechanisms in China – arbitration and litigation, so you know where and how to get help when disputes arise. This webinar will also discuss some of the successful cross-border commercial disputes handled by our speakers. During this webinar, you will learn fundamental knowledge of how Chinese domestic judicial system works, including a structure and function of the People’s courts at all levels, consist of judicial personnel, and conduct of different trails. You will then learn the general principles of arbitration, and most importantly the pros and cons of litigation and arbitration in different dispute cases and scenarios. You will also have certain practical tips on how to avoid future disputes with Chinese partners.
