The interactive edition of the Sep 2022 issue of In-House Community (IHC) Magazine is now live (below).
This issue of In-House Community Magazine, we consider dispute resolution – specifically arbitration. We hear about the new “Shenzhen & Hong Kong” Arbitration Model, established with the mission of building an international arbitration hub in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area in mind (SCIA). We also hear about Hong Kong’s new Outcome Related Fee Structure Arrangement for Arbitration, predicted to be a win for both legal practitioners and clients alike (Hill Dickinson). There are many touted benefits of arbitration, not least of which is party autonomy, including a look at the psychological benefits of arbitration and the status of arbitration in Thailand (Kudun & Partners). And we also look deeper into the new ‘Competence-Competence’ doctrine in arbitration law in China (Llinks Law Office).
INCLUDING SPECIAL FEATURES
We are further taught a lesson on the benefits of board portal communication over traditional email and PDFs (Praxonomy).
Ban Jiun Ean talks to us about rejoining Maxwell Chambers, Singapore, after leaving in 2015. Far from spending his days away steeped only in legal work, he ran a theatre and arts centre and wrote a children’s book! This creative mindset illuminates his ideas on ADR.
We further get to know Joe Liu formerly of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, now forging a new path as an independent arbitrator. His global career journey gives him much-needed worldly insight into the field of arbitration.
As usual, we also cover last month’s top deals, partner level moves, and latest legal industry news.
We hope you enjoy the issue.
