Our International Arbitration Practice is one of the largest worldwide, with industry-specialist practitioners having conduct of arbitrations across sectors involving infrastructure, energy, financial services, gaming, hospitality, pharmaceutical, technology, transport, commodities, international trade and other commercial investments.

We lead the pack in Asia’s top arbitration hub. Our lawyers have acted in some of the most significant arbitrations in the region, handling almost all investor-state arbitration disputes brought before the Singapore Courts as well as achieving the first-ever win for a Singapore law firm in an ICSID arbitration. Our deep familiarity with institutional arbitrations conducted worldwide, under all major arbitration rules such as AIAC, CEITAC, DIAC, HKIAC, ICC, ICDR, ICSID, LCIA, SIAC and UNCITRAL, is reflected in both counsel and tribunal appointments of our lawyers.

We continue to shape tomorrow’s arbitration practice through key appointments in prominent organisations, arbitration courts, and thought leadership committees worldwide. These include key appointments in the Courts of the SIAC and ICC, the IBA Arbitration Committee, the IPBA Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Committee, CIArb Singapore, the YSIAC Committee; as well as Senior Accredited Specialists in Building and Construction Law by the Singapore Academy of Law.

Our deep bench has seen us consistently ranked in many international legal publications. Our lawyers are known for their grit, precision and ability to deliver smart outcomes. Clients choose to work with us to solve their most difficult and high-stakes issues. Our approach of leaving no stones unturned in our delivery of the best and the most cost-effective results at every step of the way continues to secure us mandates in the most complex and cutting-edge matters.
