The installation of the Intellectual Court and the Commercial Court at the High Court Level to expeditiously review business disputes, adopting a two-level-second-instance system to adjudicate major commercial cases.
▍2.Mandatory representation by attorneys
In these proceedings, the parties should be represented by persons who have the qualifications to be attorneys, in order to enhance the effectiveness of the trials.
▍3.Mandatory mediation procedures
Mediation should be conducted as a first step in major commercial cases to assist the parties in resolving disputes independently.
▍4.Adopting technology in trials
All pleadings should be transmitted through an online system, and the court may use the Internet to examine and adjudicate the case remotely, facilitating the parties' access to the court.
▍5.Expert witnesses and the parties' inquiry system
The parties may invite expert witnesses to provide opinions to help strengthen the professionalism of the trial, and may make inquiries of, or request explanations from, the opposing parties on enumerated particularities to speed up the trial proceedings.
