Dispute Resolution and Arbitration

Our lawyers have rich experience in arbitration and dispute resolution proceedings at courts and arbitral tribunals, and significant expertise in commercial litigation across other sectors, competition law and anti-trust issues, white-collar crimes, restructuring and insolvency.

A substantial part of our arbitration and dispute resolution practice arises out of complex commercial transactions. Our emphasis is on aligning litigation strategy with the commercial interests of our clients, while recognising time sensitivities. Our lawyers frequently work with other practices, such as tax, competition, intellectual property, information technology, infrastructure and energy, to provide incisive advice.
