This content is provided by HFW.


We have specialist dispute resolution teams across the breadth of our global networks, regularly handling high-value, complex, multi-party, multi-jurisdictional disputes. Our expertise spans a wide range of sectors and industries. 

With long-standing expertise in International Arbitration, we handle arbitrations of all sizes, from disputes settled on the basis purely of written submissions to those needing the involvement of a full legal team, counsel and experts. We tailor our involvement to suit each individual case.
We conduct arbitrations in all the significant jurisdictions and under the most used arbitration forums, including many under the UNICTRAL, LCIA, ICC, ICSID, ARIAS, CIETAC, HKAIC, SIAC and SCC Rules. We also conduct many hundreds of arbitrations under the specific governing rules of trade bodies such as GAFTA, FOSFA, LMAA, LME, RSA and LOF.
Our Singapore office practice has grown in strength, reflecting the increasing importance of Singapore as a recognised centre for international arbitration work. 

Our Singapore practice is particularly adept at work in the shipbuilding, oil and gas, and commodities sectors, handling arbitrations under a range of institutional and trade rules. 

Our Foreign Law Alliance with AsiaLegal LLC enhances our ability to offer clients the resources of a global team and firm with specialist local experience and capability.
