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.
