We represent parties to international and domestic arbitrations under various procedural rules including ICC, UNCITRAL, Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), China International Economic and Trade Commission (CIETAC), Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA).
The appointment of the arbitration tribunal is of fundamental importance to the outcome of the arbitration and we give careful attention to this early-stage procedure.
As advocates, clients obtain the benefit of a comprehensive strategy devised and implemented from the outset of the arbitration. This allows for better management of the time and costs of the process. Importantly, we identify from the beginning the various stages of the arbitration process where settlement negotiations may be leveraged.
Our experience extends to the enforcement of arbitration awards particularly in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
