Czech (&Central European) Yearbook of Arbitration – The concept of arbitration as a method of dispute resolution is becoming increasingly important. Central and Eastern Europe, on which this book focuses (though not exclusively) is steeped in the Roman tradition of continental Europe, where arbitration is based on the autonomy of the parties and informal procedure. This classical approach is somewhat different from the principle on which the system of arbitration in countries with a common-law tradition is built. The CYArb project aims to help address this issue and provide a forum for comparisons of arbitration practice and doctrine in different countries, both mutually and in relation to other international practices. It sheds light on practical and academic fields in those countries in order to compare domestic approaches to arbitration and to provide a comparison with broader European and international practices. www.czechyearbook.org

The diverse expertise and multicultural backgrounds of Kim & Chang’s professionals make the firm the recognized leader in providing specialized legal services for cross-border transactions.

In fact, our professionals are qualified to advise in the laws of the U.S., Japan, China, Germany, France, and the Netherlands as well as of the laws of Korea.

Reflecting its global outlook, Kim & Chang pioneered the establishment of practice groups specializing in serving clients from or in Japan, China, and Europe.
