If any “foreign-related factor” exists in a transaction between parties, e.g., one of the parties is a foreign individual or legal person, the object in dispute is located overseas, or the fact giving rise to the existence, modification or termination of civil legal relations takes place abroad, the arbitration of the dispute arises from or related to such transaction is called “foreign-related” arbitration in common parlance. China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, China Maritime Arbitration Commission, Shanghai International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, South China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission are the arbitration institutions involved in “foreign-related” arbitration inside China. Also, certain regional arbitration commissions accept “foreign-related” arbitration cases. “Foreign-related” arbitration has more requirements on selection of arbitrators, application of law, language skills and the procedures of arbitration. Sometimes, the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards may necessitate cross-bounder endeavors. Representation by lawyers to participate in “foreign-related” arbitration becomes more indispensable.
