Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution

  Alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") has become a popular means to settle disputes out of court, with arbitration being one of the prime ADR mechanisms, where the parties agree to submit their dispute to an impartial adjudicator, who will render a final and binding decision. Arbitration can protect the parties' rights and interests effectively because it is more efficient than court proceedings, is cost-effective, and offers flexible options for businesses. Furthermore, the arbitral proceedings and award are generally kept confidential.

Lee and Li has extensive experience and achievements in domestic and international arbitration cases, and for over 70 years has tirelessly participated in the formulation of legislation and promoted arbitration. In recent years, rapid changes in the global economy have not only increased the complexity and diversity in international trade and financial investment, but also engendered unprecedented types of disputes. In response, the Arbitration Task Force was created to provide effective and professional services and secure the best outcome for clients.

Working in tandem with the other Lee and Li task forces, the Arbitration Task Force is able to understand the exact needs of the client and the core of the dispute, offering unparalleled, comprehensive legal services in time. It brings together more than 40 professionals, including partners, counselors, and senior attorneys. Besides domestic cases such as public construction, financial transactions, contract of hire of work, and business investment, we have also worked on international arbitration cases from America, Africa, and Asian territories such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Moreover, we are proud of our records in handling arbitration cases from the Chinese Arbitration Association, the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the International Court of Arbitration of International Chamber of Commerce, and the American Arbitration Association. Such experience has unquestionably made Lee and Li the foremost leader in arbitration cases in Taiwan.
