  1. Arbitration in Singapore

    Arbitration has over recent years become the preferred mode of dispute resolution among parties entering into cross-border transactions, providing a flexible and efficient mechanism for the resolution of disputes between parties from different legal and cultural backgrounds. As Singapore continues to grow and position itself as a centre for dispute resolution, not only locally and regionally, but also internationally as a centre of arbitration and mediation excellence, arbitration has thus become one of the fastest growing areas of law in this country. 

    Arbitration in Singapore: A Practical Guide is a comprehensive how-to text guide written by the practitioners for practitioners. The book discusses the role of the Singapore court during and after arbitration, providing guidance on when the court can intervene in proceedings, enforce, and entertain a challenge to an award. Each stage of arbitration is explained clearly, from the appointment of the tribunal and its powers, to the relief and remedies it may award. It covers the key features of arbitration agreements and examines the subject through expert commentary and analysis.
