Hong Kong Court Confirms Pro-Arbitration Stance

Hong Kong Court confirms pro-arbitration stance

Herbert Smith Freehills review the Hong Kong Court’s decision in U v A [2017] HKEC 468, where the Court dismissed an application to set aside an Order for enforcement of an ICC award rendered in Hong Kong. The court reiterated that Hong Kong Courts will refuse challenges to enforcement based on unmeritorious technical points or minor procedural complaints and that an error will only be considered sufficiently serious if it undermines due process.
