Introduction to Dispute Settlement Clauses in Contracts
June 26 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In association with
Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
In commercial practice, dispute resolution clauses are often relegated to the end of contractual negotiations, or dismissed as standard formulation without further thoughts as to the context. But these clauses can have profound implications for how / when / where / at which cost the dispute is resolved.
This presentation will, with plenty of case studies from the practice, focus on how to agree on an efficient dispute settlement clause in the contract to avoid risks in practice, including the importance of the dispute settlement clauses, choice of forum between litigation and arbitration and the intersection between the two.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session.
The event is organized under the legal committee of SwissCham Shanghai.
