The Evolution of Cross-Border Litigation in ChinaAugust 25, 2010
With the evolution of the Global economy it is presently more important than ever for companies to be assured that their legal rights in foreign jurisdictions are being enforced.
Due to the expansion of more business being conducted internationally, cross-border litigation firms are streamlining their processes to better meet the needs of an international community it is designed to serve.
China offers a premiere example of the necessity for litigators who are well-versed in Chinese law to help corporations doing business overseas to navigate the involved judicial systems of local Chinese counsels and successfully represent clients subject to court, arbitration or administrative proceedings in Hong Kong and mainland China.
Government inquiries and compliance audits that span international boundaries often require vigilant litigation practices to offset the complex supply chain issues that arise between China and the West that often are the result of cultural differences.
Companies with Chinese operations involved in high-stakes litigation, breach of contract, intellectual property, property infringement, trade secret misappropriation, internal investigations, securities litigation, white-collar defense, antitrust, products liability, commercial disputes and international arbitration must have access to skilled litigators who are experts at providing pre-litigation and litigation avoidance to protect their business ventures in Asia.
Cross-border litigation with China often results in complex electronic discovery issues and using business litigation attorney that can produce electronically stored information from various countries efficiently and effectively takes a law firm that practices cross-border litigation using simpler and more certain arrangements to facilitate the resolution of any culturally-based miscommunication that can arise.
