Outcome-driven problem-solving commercial approach
Disputes are an unwelcome consequence of doing business; they expose organisations to various risks, including adverse publicity, damage to relationships, distractions for the business and potentially high costs. Disputes can be even more difficult to resolve when counterparties are in different jurisdictions with different legal cultures.
As Singapore cements its position as a leading international dispute resolution centre in the region, our disputes team understands the cultural differences in the region and works together with you to find effective, strategic and commercial solutions to your cross-border disputes.
We recognise that it is essential for clients to have their commercial disputes resolved as efficiently and effectively as possible. We can also help you reduce regulatory risk through advice on compliance and handling investigations discreetly and sensitively.

- International Arbitration
- Mediation and Conciliation
- Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as Expert Determination
- Cross Border Litigation
- Investigations and Regulatory Compliance
- Enforcement of Awards and Judgments
Whatever the situation, our top priority is always to get the most satisfactory and business efficient outcome for you while preserving your reputation and business relationships.
