Our group based in Singapore handles a variety of regional and cross-border contentious and investigative matters arising from commercial, financial and infrastructure transactions and projects. The group also takes the lead in our insolvency, restructuring and insurance work.
Our Dispute Resolution team works seamlessly with other practice groups to deliver subject matter knowledge. Baker & McKenzie’s strengths in the core commercial disciplines of corporate, securities, investment, mining and projects enable the group to provide comprehensive legal service on the resolution of issues and risk management both before and in the course of formal dispute resolution proceedings. The group aims for practical, efficient and complete solutions.
The lawyers in the group also act as advocates or counsel. Through our joint law venture with Wong & Leow LLC, we enjoy full rights of audience in litigation before the Singapore courts. In conjunction with Baker & McKenzie’s global dispute resolution team, we bring together broad international litigation experience and in-depth knowledge of local cultural and business practices. Over the years, the group has also gained deep knowledge of the indigenous systems of Indonesia and Malaysia.
Our lawyers are experienced in international commercial arbitration across a wide range of industries. We are an integral part of Baker & McKenzie’s international arbitration practice and bring to it an established team of experienced arbitration practitioners focusing on arbitration in Asia.
We are fluent in arbitrations administered by established arbitration institutions, including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA), Badan Arbitrase Nasional Indonesia (BANI), Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and American Arbitration Association (AAA) as well as ad hoc arbitrations held under UNCITRAL and other rules.
