The State of US-China Business and Dispute Resolution

Amid various challenges between the world’s two largest economies, this panel discussion will focus on how the current state of US-China relations may be affecting operations of US and Chinese businesses and what companies are doing to mitigate risks and improve the resilience of their supply chains. Panelists will examine what impact current tensions may have on the dispute prevention and resolution landscape for US and Chinese parties and discuss recent trends and best practices to consider for resolving disputes between US and Chinese businesses




Life Sciences Disputes: the Next Generation

Arbitration and other ADR tools are increasingly accepted as effective mechanisms for resolving cross-border life sciences disputes. This panel’s speakers will address what type of future disputes will likely arise out of today's R&D, licensing agreements and transactions. The panel will also collectively present five “wishlist” tools and practices that should be more frequently utilised to address the industry’s expectations. Audience members will be invited to react and vote on the speakers’ proposals.
