Written by senior lawyers with rich practical experience in China, Duelling
with Dragons uses a hypothetical scenario to highlight the kinds of
disputes that can arise in the course of initiating and operating a Chinese
joint venture. After introductory chapters setting out the background and the
disputes facing “Ricepower” and its investors, subsequent chapters deal with
an overview and evaluation of the various options available to the parties to
resolve their conflicts. These include such mechanisms as the following:
• arbitration inside China
• arbitration outside China
• litigation in the People’s Courts
• administrative appeals
• investor-state arbitration
• managing intellectual property rights disputes
• handling employment and labour disputes
Specialized themes include intellectual property disputes, employment and
labour disputes, criminal law aspects of business disputes, and enforcement of
dispute outcomes both inside China and abroad. The book also features a
detailed table of legislation and cases, and statistics on arbitration and
litigation in China.
