International disputes

Building on our recognised expertise in handling high value, complex, international disputes, our Singapore disputes team focuses primarily on advising on and resolving disputes via international arbitration, whether in relation to the risk management of potential disputes during contract negotiations, or once those disputes have arisen. These disputes are usually heard in Singapore, but our recent experience extends to disputes arising across the ASEAN region, and in India and China.

We have advised or acted for clients on disputes under all of the principal arbitral rules, including those of the:

  • Singapore International Arbitration Centre
  • American Arbitration Association
  • International Chamber of Commerce
  • The London Court of International Arbitration
  • Stockholm Chamber of Commerce
  • United National Commission on International Trade Law
  • JAMS (formerly Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services)
  • International Centre for Investment Disputes
  • Industry specific bodies, such as:
    • London Maritime Arbitrators Association 
    • The Independent Film and Television Alliance
    • Rail Industry Dispute Resolution

In May 2015, Jamie Harrison successfully applied for full registration, allowing him to represent clients in offshore cases before the Singapore International Commercial Court. Jamie is one of only 11 lawyers to have been registered to date, only four of whom come from the UK.
