What the team is known for

Experienced in acting for both privately and state-owned Chinese businesses and international corporations in high-value arbitration proceedings. Regularly advises on cross-border disputes, and offers notable expertise in arbitrations related to bilateral investment treaties. Often acts for major private equity firms, as well as clients in the pharmaceutical and telecommunications sectors.

Strengths

An "extremely happy" client appreciates that the team "really walked me through the process and was very strategic, taking measured steps to get the results we wanted," adding: "The firm will get my business on all arbitration matters going forward."

Another client reports: "Freshfields did and is still doing an excellent, outstanding job. We could not have been advised in a better way." The client expands: "The team acts proactively and gives you alternative solutions, but always advises you on what would be best in the current situation."

Notable practitioners

John Choong is an adept arbitration counsel to both domestic and international private companies and SOEs across a broad spectrum of industry sectors. A client applauds him for being "extremely responsive and extremely business-friendly at coming to commercial solutions, not just legal ones." The client goes on to say: "We were willing to go to arbitration because we had a strong case, but that would have ultimately been a lose-lose situation, which John was very pragmatic and helped us avoid."
