Ronald J. Colombo, associate professor at Hofstra University School of Law, whose research focuses on corporate law, said that under Article 243 of China’s Procedure Law, Chinese courts have jurisdiction in contract disputes where either the contract was signed in China, or the subject matter is within Chinese territory. In this case, “there could be a pretty strong argument made that the subject matter is within the (Chinese) territory,” said Colombo.
