About the Webinar
Your client has obtained a favourable foreign (or Mainland) judgment or arbitral award, and wishes to enforce it in Hong Kong, for a variety of reasons. The commonest reasons are that the losing opponent has substantial assets in Hong Kong, or substantial business interests here, such that enforcement here will either reap the actual fruits of litigation / arbitration, or at least serve as a real commercial deterrent to the opponent. How do you go about doing that? What are the procedures involved, and what if the opponent resists (if only at this enforcement stage) – what grounds of opposition could the opponent effectively invoke? This webinar offers an overview (or, for the seasoned cross-border litigation / arbitration practitioner, a refresher) of these procedures and grounds of opposition for foreign judgments and foreign arbitral awards respectively, making comparisons between them where appropriate.
