This comprehensive and practical reference work offers extensive coverage of international arbitration as practiced across 24 key jurisdictions. In recent decades, there has been an extraordinary growth in arbitration throughout Asia and consequently arbitration centres in Singapore, Hong Kong and mainland China continue to report a steady increase in the number of cases. This handbook is the first to offer practitioners detailed guidance to help resolve issues that are likely to arise throughout the arbitration process and advise them of localised particularities in some areas which have very different arbitration traditions and judicial systems. Containing specific chapters on jurisdictions throughout Asia (including Australasia) and a chapter devoted to the ICC in Asia, the book offers an impressive level of detail including information on key arbitration trends and statistics. A common structure allows for ease of navigation and quick, comparative cross-referencing between jurisdictions as well as ensuring consistent coverage across the chapters. The jurisdictions covered include Japan, Republic of Korea, People's Republic of China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, Taiwan, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Myanmar, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia, and New Zealand. The editors Michael Moser and John Choong have worked with a strong author team of Asia arbitration experts to comment on the methods of practice in each specific area and provide practical solutions in response to practical issues. The Asia Arbitration Handbook is unique in its coverage of investor-state arbitration and bilateral investment treaties in this region, making it the first reference work to cover the law and practice of local arbitration, international commercial arbitration and investor-state arbitration in the key Asian jurisdictions. Its exhaustive scope both in terms of covered jurisdictions and content for each jurisdiction will make it a valuable addition to every law firm and in-house legal team library concerned with arbitration in Asia.
