Recognition & Enforcement of Judgment and Arbitral Award in China
Within two decades since the return of Hong Kong’s sovereignty to China, the courts of Hong Kong and Mainland China have handled more than 20,000 judicial assistance cases in accordance with various arrangements and respective local legislations. The establishment of mutual legal assistance system has protected the litigants’ legitimate interests, facilitating the social exchanges and economic development between the two jurisdictions.
We assist Hong Kong companies in enforcing court judgments and arbitral awards obtained in the PRC and Hong Kong by virtue of the “Arrangement on Reciprocal Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters by the Courts of the Mainland and of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region”, the “Arrangement on Reciprocal Recognition and Enforcement of Civil Judgments in Matrimonial and Family Cases by the Courts of the Mainland and of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region” and the “Arrangement Concerning Mutual Enforcement of Arbitral Awards Between the Mainland and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region”, etc.
Our China Practice team can represent Hong Kong companies in litigations and arbitrations in the PRC and assist them in enforcing judgments and arbitral awards in the PRC. We can also assist clients in obtaining injunctions and other interim measures in the PRC pursuant to the “Arrangement Concerning Mutual Assistance in Court-ordered Interim Measures in Aid of Arbitral Proceedings by the Courts of the Mainland and of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region”, pending the determination of the arbitration in Hong Kong.
