This practice has grown significantly in line with Singapore’s growing reputation as an alternative dispute resolution hub, in particular for mediations and arbitrations. We have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution in the following areas:
- Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Projects
- Intellectual Property
- International Sales
Internationally, we have been involved in arbitrations arising from many jurisdictions such as Brunei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, PRC, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Our lawyers act as arbitrators, adjudicators or mediators and are on the panel of many institutions, such as the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the Singapore Mediation Centre and the International Chamber of Commerce.
These arbitrations were either ad-hoc or conducted under the rules of various institutions such as the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the Kuala Lumpur International Arbitration Centre, the International Chamber of Commerce and UNCITRAL.
We have also advised on and represented parties in court applications relating to arbitrations, e.g setting aside of awards and removal of arbitrator(s).
The Firm has a burgeoning ADR offering, and is experienced in SIAC, KLRCA, ICC, and UNCITRAL arbitrations.
