New Tool for Navigating the Future of Cross-Border Contracts
Chinese European Arbitration Centre
A useful tool for dispute resolution in China related trade and investment matters, adapted to the needs of the international business and legal community worldwide.
The Chinese European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) offers services of an institutional arbitration centre tailor-made to the needs of trade with China based on the CEAC Arbitration Rules (CEAC Rules). CEAC follows a truly global approach granting equal power to Chinese, European and worldwide participants. By choosing this approach CEAC guaranties neutrality, in particular during the process for the choice of a neutral arbitrator.
During the preparation and negotiation of an international contract with a direct or indirect relation to China, the parties can refer to a CEAC Arbitration Clause to agree on a neutral arbitral institution and a neutral place of arbitration. Similarly, the CEAC Choice of Law Clause offers options to agree on common and/ or neutral substantive rules.
CEAC Rules offer a state-of-the-art and modern mechanism to settle China related disputes in an international spirit by institutional arbitration.
Parties are free to choose their arbitrators. However, CEAC provides a list of qualified arbitrators.
CEAC provides model clauses for international contracts: An arbitration clause and a choice of law clause.
Prof. Dr. Eckart Brödermann, managing director of CEAC, visited Thailand Arbitration Center (“THAC”) on 16 October 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. THAC was established subject to the Thailand Act of Arbitration Center B.E. 2550 in 2007 and well supported by the Thai government.
On the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the International Bar Association, Herbert Smith Freehills and the Chinese European Legal Association invite you to join a breakfast reception.
The Chinese European Arbitration Centre (CEAC) is held by its sole shareholder, the Chinese European Legal Association (CELA).
CELA is a non-profit organisation and does not interfere with the arbitration procedures. CELA was founded in July 2008 to support and foster the exchange and interaction between China and Europe in the areas of law and legal culture. It is CELA's strong belief that a better knowledge of each other's legal and general culture as well as personal relationships are of paramount importance in creating fruitful and undisturbed trade relations.
