Dear Young CEAC members, we - Catrice, Jonas and York -, being the new Young CEAC Co-Chairs, are pleased to finally revive the activities of Young CEAC.
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.
The trade between Chinese and European parties has enhanced during the last years, yet it remains subject to special challenges and risks. As a backbone to this trade, arbitration provides a functional instrument to resolve disputes and the necessary security to enforce mutual rights and duties.
CEAC and CELA are in the process of reshaping our websites. We encourage you to visit our new platforms soon or contact us if you have any request in the meantime.
This is to invite you to join us for our (meanwhile traditional) CEAC Breakfast Reception on the occasion of the IBA Annual Meeting.
At the occasion of the visit of a Chinese business delegation chaired by Han Zheng (Secretary of the Communist Party of Shanghai) in June to Hamburg, Germany, CEAC Managing Director Professor Eckart Brödermann represented CEAC at an official luncheon hosted by the Mayor of Hamburg at the Town Hall.
CEAC Rules offer a state-of-the-art and modern mechanism to settle China related disputes in an international spirit by institutional arbitration as required by Chinese law.
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.
