Special Administrative Region Court of First Instance, 19 January 2018, Arjowiggins HKK2 Limited v. Shandong Chenming Paper Holdings Limited, no. HCCT 53/2015

Two companies entered into a contract to establish a joint venture. A dispute arose and one of the companies (Claimant) commenced arbitration proceedings pursuant to the arbitration clause included in the joint venture contract. An award was rendered in 2015 against the Respondent. As the latter decided to bring actions in Hong Kong and Mainland China, the Claimant requested an anti-suit injunction from the Hong Kong High Court. The Court granted the anti-suit injunction, considering that the Respondent had “displayed complete disrespect for the arbitration agreement and the arbitral process”.
