Asia-Pacific Forum: Navigating the Life Cycle of a Cross-Border Deal

October 24-25, 2019 • Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre • Hong Kong

The conference

This Forum will cover what every practitioner needs to know in cross-border deals. International transactions have unique features, and the differences between Western and Asian cultures draw even more complexities. Leading experts will provide a road map and cutting- edge strategies to navigate the minefields of negotiating, structuring, and completing a deal, as well as resolving disputes that can obstruct a deal. They will also provide insights into the latest national security hurdles to foreign investment and cross-border transactions. The Forum will take place during Hong Kong Arbitration Week, a "Must Attend" event for arbitration practitioners in Asia and around the world.

Why this conference is important

In times fraught with strained trade and other international relations issues, the challenges of cross-border transactions have mushroomed. Experts from around the world will provide a road- map and cutting edge strategies to navigate the minefields of negotiating, structuring, and completing a deal or resolving disputes that obstructed a deal, as well as provide insights into the latest national security hurdles to foreign investment and cross-border deals.
