Editor’s Note: As enterprises are increasingly engaged in international trade and
investment, international arbitration is recognized as the preferred option in the face of
cross-border disputes. However, international arbitration, which differs from domestic
arbitration with complex procedures, often put parties unfamiliar with its rules in an
inherent disadvantage. King & Wood Mallesons’ international arbitration teams are
located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of
China, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, London, Madrid, Brussels, Dubai, Tokyo, New York and
Silicon Valley. KWM International Arbitration Fundamentals is co-hosted by King & Wood
Mallesons’ China and Australia international arbitration teams. The purpose of the
program is to share knowledge and experience on international arbitration, including
international commercial arbitration and investment arbitration, from the perspective of
experienced lawyers. Hopefully it will benefit parties engaged in international arbitration.
Please comment with any suggestions or ideas.
Arbitration agreement is the cornerstone of international commercial arbitration which
records the parties’ consent to submit the dispute for arbitration. Such consent is the
prerequisite for the smooth progress of arbitration proceeding and the recognition and
enforcement of arbitral awards.
