Disruption, downturn and recovery tend to generate more disputes – and in Asia Pacific cross-jurisdiction operations and investments increase that risk.

Our 2021 Guide to Dispute Resolution in Asia Pacific is your roadmap to potential problems in these fast-changing times, especially for those new to the region’s complex legal landscape.

From the basics of each legal system, including litigation and arbitration procedures, to class actions, fee arrangements, third party funding and electronic/digitisation reforms to court proceedings, the new edition summarises the key dispute resolution procedures and trends in 19 of Asia Pacific’s diverse jurisdictions.

The guide has been compiled by our network of Herbert Smith Freehills disputes specialists, with the assistance of local counsel in certain jurisdictions, led by Gareth Thomas and Priya Aswani.
