Client Alert May 11, 2020
- In the midst of the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, U.S. accusers who obtain a judgment in their dispute can use it to interfere with the day-to-day commercial activities of PRC entities.
- To prevent and protect against a judgment, Chinese entities must understand both their own vulnerabilities and their legitimate rights before and after a judgment.
- Pre-emptively preparing a defensive strategy that considers not only judgment defense, but also other likely scenarios – from a civil IP theft dispute to U.S. criminal proceedings under the umbrella of national security – can be quite effective.
