Disputes frequently arise in business relationships. As a foreign (invested) company, you may one day find yourself in a dispute with a Chinese company, government authority, employee, etc. Common practice in Chinese business relationships is to re-negotiate or settle disputes, but if this does not lead to a satisfactory result, you may need to proceed to (international) arbitration or Chinese courts. Common challenges to Chinese litigation (and to a certain extent, arbitration) are local protectionism and corruption, strict evidentiary rules, enforcement challenges and the costs of litigation. Notwithstanding the current system’s imperfections, many disputes are now being successfully resolved through formal dispute resolution mechanisms in China.
