This is the first detailed commentary on the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) Administered Arbitration Rules, providing practitioners with an insider's perspective on how the HKIAC Secretariat administers arbitrations under these rules. The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre is one of the world's most sophisticated arbitration institutions, with a continuously growing annual caseload.
This practical guide makes reference to the Hong Kong Arbitration Ordinance as well as drawing comparisons with other institutional rules and the UNCITRAL Model Rules to emphasize the key issues to consider when drafting an arbitral clause or strategizing over the conduct of an arbitration.
As well as offering an insider's perspective, itprovides examples of anonymous cases handled at the HKIAC and a discussion of various issues arising from arbitrations involving mainland parties or enforcing arbitration awards in mainland China.
The book not only draws from the authors' many years of experience administering arbitrations under theHKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules (2008) but highlights the various changes made in the revised Rules that came into effect in November 2013 benefitting from the authors' privileged access.
The book begins with an introduction to the HKIAC, including a history with statistics and details of other services, provided by the HKIAC itself.
The commentary then goes on to examine each article in depth.
Relevant supporting documents are appended, including Recommended HKIAC Arbitration Clauses; the HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules (2013); the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules 2010; and the Hong Kong Arbitration Ordinance.
No aspect of HKIAC arbitration is left unexamined, and the guidestands alone as a comprehensive exposition of HKIAC arbitration.
