Strengthening Enforcement & Compliance

Concerns about the enforcement of Chinese law are frequently raised by both UK and Chinese business communities and commercial legal practitioners, and targeted work on areas of mutual benefit can improve legal certainty for businesses in both countries.

Lord Phillips Dispute Resolution

Through consultation with Chinese partners, GBCC has identified specific strands of project work which can contribute to the development of a fairer and more effective legal and judicial system, including improving procedural practice, ensuring laws are well drafted, consistent, and transparent so that businesses can easily comply, and ensuring businesses have access to swift and effective redress.

For example, the quality and consistency of judgements on anti-monopoly and consumer protection can be improved through the use of guiding cases and greater support for specialist IP and insolvency courts, and common law techniques for witness examination and evidence discovery can contribute to improved litigation procedures. By sharing dispute resolution models internationally, including within the Belt & Road Initiative, and strengthening the legal profession to provide ethical, informed, high quality legal advice, GBCC works with partners in the UK and China to ensure better procedures and compliance as well as promoting the choice of English law and UK arbitration.
