What the team is known for Broad regional coverage, anchored by substantial teams in Hong Kong and Singapore and backed by an integrated worldwide network. Noted for its expertise and experience in the energy, infrastructure, pharmaceutical and technology spaces. Already known for its particularly deep knowledge of the workings of HKIAC, SIAC and the ICC, it also offers a noted ad hoc arbitration capability. Additionally developing its capabilities to handle matters originating in Australia, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and North Asia, it is a pioneer, in Singapore, of arbitration supported by third-party funding.

Strengths A client identifies the firm as a "preferred choice" in this field, "given its eminent and illustrious team of arbitration lawyers across the globe."

Another source notes: "What they do best, in an area that can be very difficult in these matters, is to frame their thoughts well and help make communication better in terms of cultural and linguistic barriers."
