International arbitration: GvW Legal Counsel Ronnia Zheng appointed as Vice President of ASEAA Board

Ronnia Zheng, LL.M. (郑蓉), a legal counsel of the Hamburg office of GvW Graf von Westphalen, is appointed as a Vice President of Asian European Arbitration Association e.V. (ASEAA) as of April 16, 2024.

The practice focuses of Ms. Zheng are international arbitration, regulatory and compliance. Ms. Zheng joined GvW in 2021. She has pursued a unique China-the U.S.-Germany study and working path, and has accumulated first hand in-depth professional experiences and cultural understandings of these three jurisdictions.

Ms. Zheng represents clients in European-Sino commercial disputes, primarily arbitration proceedings administrated by a number of leading international arbitration institutions. She also provides PRC law advice to German and international companies for their China business and helps her clients to navigate through the evolving PRC regulatory and administrative enforcement environment.

ASEAA is the sole shareholder of the Asian European Arbitration Centre (ASEAC) which was founded to promote arbitration and other out-of-court dispute resolution methods in international legal relations, in particular in relation to Asia.

ASEAC is an independent arbitration institution offering services tailored to the needs of commercial entities doing business with Asia, in particular China, based on the ASEAC Arbitration Rules. Many arbitrators working internationally and listed with ASEAC have a proven track record in arbitration matters involving Asian-European commercial transactions. GvW partners and counsels Dr Raimond Emde, Dr Björn Etgen, Dr Klaus Landry, Christian Mayer-Gießen and Felix Prozorov-Bastians are also recognised as ASEAC arbitrators.

We at GvW, with our GvW Arbitration Practice and our GvW China Practice, provide companies with comprehensive advice and guidance on all phases of arbitration, from agreeing to an arbitration clause to enforcing arbitration claims.
