Arbitration & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our firm recognizes the usefulness of Arbitration as an increasingly popular mode of resolving commercial disputes. One of our partners is an arbitrator (registered with the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators). We undertake work in arbitration including advising clients in all aspects of Arbitration, provisions of Arbitration Act, and representing clients before arbitral tribunals. We also preside over arbitrations (as arbitrator) as and when called upon in appropriate commercial transactions.

We have experience in the area, having handled arbitration involving entities such as government owned companies in the energy sector, a leading local authority, various building construction companies and disputes touching on consultancies, especially in the building construction sector.

The partner in charge of Arbitration attends seminars, workshops and continuing education programmes with a view to keeping abreast with current developments in this field.

We have also developed skills in mediation and guide disputants to an acceptable settlement of disputes which would otherwise lead to expensive time-consuming litigation.
