Special thanks to Prof Barış Soyer and the IISTL team, as well as the support from HFW, this seminar has been a success. It was wonderful to see so many interesting topics were discussed among some of the world’s leading scholars and lawyers during the seminar, including jurisdiction and arbitration clauses, recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards and problems regarding jurisdiction and litigation.
Among all the excellent speakers, CECCA Senior Member, partner of the Ahlers & Vogel Rechtsanwälte Dr Tobias Eckardt talked about recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards in Germany while Mr Patrick Zheng from Llinks Law Offices provided his insights from the Chinese perspective.
CECCA co-Director Dr Shengnan Jia (a partner at Tahota Lawfirm) and CECCA Editor-in-Chief Haiyang Yu (PhD researcher at Maastricht Uni) presented their research on the impact of Coronavirus on Commercial Contracts and Dispute Resolution in the last session, which was chaired by Mr Justice Picken, Judge of the Commercial Court and Presiding Judge of the Wales Circuit.
CECCA co-Director Dr Lijun Zhao gave the closing speech.
Thanks to all!
