You are cordially invited to attend "Emerging Legal Risks in Greater China: Navigating Litigation and Corporate Issues" presented by the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY), in collaboration with JAMS. This program is being offered both in person and online at JAMS Resolution Center in Midtown New York and via Zoom.
With the geopolitical, economic, and COVID-19 related environment in constant flux, legal practitioners and businesspeople alike may struggle to understand the current dynamics of the U.S.- China relationship and the legal and business risks that may emerge from doing business in the present era. For example, some multi-national companies are looking to limit their exposure to potential political or economic crisis emerging from this uncertain environment. However, given the size and interwovenness of the US and Chinese economies, it would be difficult to avoid the Greater China region altogether - expert navigation is required.
AABANY’s Asia Practice Committee has assembled a panel to address in detail a broad range of corporate and litigation issues arising from this shift in geopolitical reality, including:
- Dispute resolution and legal trends, including distressed debts and regulatory compliance
- National Security Law in Hong Kong, its interpretation and impact on M&A, litigation, arbitration, and foreign counsel participation
- Challenges and recommendations on due diligence, investor exits, data security, and commercial operations.
