What the team is known for

Respected Singapore-headquartered practice, acting across the region in investment treaty disputes and conducting its own advocacy on complex mandates for both locally-based US and European multinationals and state-owned entities, including major players in the oil, gas and construction sectors. Established presence in South and South-East Asia, particularly in Singapore and the Philippines, augmented by a rising profile where matters involving Australia and Japan are concerned.

Strengths

One interviewee notes that this firm "clearly has an outstanding arbitration practice around Asia and benefits from its regional and global network," while another speaks similarly of  "a deep bench of talented arbitration practitioners who handle some of the biggest and most complicated disputes in the region."

High praise is also lavished on the team's "great attention to detail" and "strong awareness of market conditions and different cultural sensitivities across the Asian region."

Work highlights

Acted for Samsung C&T in several arbitrations and related court proceedings against various parties involved in the development of the Roy Hill iron ore project in Australia, a total of USD1.2 billion being at stake.

Notable practitioners

Singapore-based partner Wade Coriell is deputy head of the firm's global international arbitration practice and leader of the Asian international disputes team.
