Dispute Resolution

Dispute resolution has been a core area of practice throughout the development of JunHe. With the expansion of our practice areas and the growing needs of our clients, JunHe’s dispute resolution team has shifted from the provision of traditional civil and commercial litigation and arbitration services (including international arbitration) to providing a full range of dispute resolution services. These include criminal actions, administrative punishment and administrative litigation, compliance related matters such as commercial compliance in relation to anti-unfair competition, compliance investigations in relation to Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), FCPA investigations and internal corporate compliance investigations, and bankruptcy practice. 

Our Team

JunHe’s dispute resolution team consists of more than 120 lawyers, including more than 50 partners. All our attorneys graduated from famous law schools both at home and abroad and many were ex-judges or recruited from leading litigation firms. Our litigators have extensive experience appearing before courts at various levels and well-known arbitration tribunals and offer clients an in-depth understanding of the Chinese legal system and judicial practice. Some of our partners regularly serve as arbitrators with the world’s most prestigious arbitration institutions and have significant experience in international commercial arbitration. Our team includes many lawyers who are qualified to practice concurrently in China as well as in the U.S., Hong Kong and other jurisdictions. The team works in multiple languages including Chinese, English, French and Japanese. We provide clients with high quality dispute resolution services that span borders, languages and industries.
