Butterworths Hong Kong Arbitration Law Handbook is a detailed work of reference containing the newly effective Arbitration Ordinance (Cap 609), which took effect on 1 June 2011. This new Ordinance replaces entirely the former major legislation (Cap 341) pertaining to arbitration law and practice in Hong Kong, crystallizing Hong Kong's place as a Model Law jurisdiction by transforming the previous dual regime into a unitary regime that not only reflects but, to a large extent, replicates the Model Law.

This Handbook presents the consolidated text of the Ordinance in a convenient and up-to-date form with section-by-section annotations. Annotations include references to cases assisting in the interpretation of each section, relevant rules of court, definitions of words and phrases, discussion on practical aspects of application and contentious issues. Hong Kong and UK cases, related legislation and other authoritative materials are identified and discussed in detail. All annotations are fully cross-referenced with comprehensive tables of cases and legislation.

This Handbook is an invaluable source of information for arbitration practitioners, legal practitioners, in-house counsel, business leaders, entrepreneurs, students and anyone interested in the arbitration laws and practices governing Hong Kong.
