Singapore is a hub for the resolution of international arbitrations and disputes. As a centre for commerce, we have businesses from all over the world conducting trade on our shores. International arbitration and disputes are a reality in our modern business climate.

Arbitration in Singapore can be conducted under the regime of the Arbitration Act or the International Arbitration Act.

Our expertise and experience in this field are particularly in Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) and the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (“SCMA”) arbitrations. The SIAC is a world-renowned arbitration centre which needs no introduction. The SIAC has been handling increasing caseloads since its inception in 2006. The SMCA offers an economical and viable alternative to the SIAC in international disputes.

We also advise international entities on how they can protect their rights when they are doing business in Singapore. Our work has involved parties from all over the world; including but not limited to Clients from India, China, Mongolia, Russia, UK, US, Denmark, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, Norway, Malaysia, countries in the Caribbean, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia.


If you have an international dispute, you will need to be advised on the best forum to proceed with your action, projected cost of litigation and ultimately your avenues for enforcement of the award/ judgment.


Contact Silvester Legal LLC to be advised on your options and a clear plan on how you should proceed in cases of international arbitrations and disputes.
