HK, China agreement

On 18 January 2019, Hong Kong and China signed the Arrangement on Reciprocal Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and t pulCommercial Matters between the Courts of the Mainland and of the Hong Kong SAR.

This is an important development for parties negotiating dispute resolution mechanisms and considering choice of court provisions. The arrangement applies to civil judgments and covers both monetary and non-monetary relief. Judgment creditors will not need to commence fresh proceedings in the enforcing jurisdiction. The arrangement will take effect on a date to be announced.

She is experienced in advising on regulatory investigations and enforcement as well as complex civil litigation and arbitration, and previously served as an in-house counsel at the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong.

“Maria will be a key addition to our global disputes practice allowing us to meet growing client demand for disputes services across Asia,” said Dechert’s Hong Kong office head David Cho. “Her experience across complex litigation, arbitration as well as government enforcement and investigations enhances the firm’s offering in the region.”
