SW partner Mr. Eric Lui, Business Development Manager Ms. Zita Huang and Public Relations Manager Ms. Yo Yo Fang attended the Hong Kong Legal Services Forum held in Nanjing, China organized by the Department of Justice between14-15 November 2016. The Forum was co-organized by the Law Society of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Bar Association, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce, China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, and China Maritime Arbitration Commission.
With the theme of this year’s Forum being “Jiangsu • Hong Kong – Together we seize global business opportunities”, the Forum promoted Hong Kong’s unique position as an international legal and dispute resolution centre within the context of the One Belt One Road Initiative. With the Forum’s emphasis on the abundance of legal professionals in Hong Kong having international exposure, this further highlights that firms in Hong Kong are well placed to advise on issues facing Mainland enterprises investing overseas.
Other highlights included a mock arbitration session staged to provide insight of this alternate method of dispute resolution. A business matching session was also provided for law firms to promote their services to potential clients on the spot.
Please contact our Mr. Eric Lui for any enquiries or further information about this event.
