Rajah & Tann Asia launches Arbitration Asia, a new one-stop arbitration resource that shines a spotlight on Asia

Rajah & Tann Asia is pleased to announce the launch of Arbitration Asia, a new one-stop arbitration resource that shines a spotlight on Asia, providing insightful analyses of the latest arbitration-related legislative and regulatory developments, case alerts, market updates and events or happenings across Asia Pacific.

A key feature of Arbitration Asia is its Country Chapters, a bespoke go-to resource that sets out key aspects of the arbitration framework of each jurisdiction highlighted in our website, covering basics like judicial hierarchy and domestic arbitral institutions to substantive issues such as conflicts of laws and the extent of adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law. Presented in a Q&A format, the Country Chapters will be regularly updated and expanded in scope progressively.

Francis Xavier SC, Regional Head of Disputes Resolution at Rajah & Tann Asia and the immediate past President of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) said: “Asia has been at the forefront of developments in international arbitration. Through Arbitration Asia, we hope to drive innovation and spark new ideas in approaching alternative dispute resolution, as well as offer a variety of Asian perspectives on international arbitration issues. Arbitration Asia is a true testament of Rajah & Tann Asia’s global branding as Lawyers Who Know Asia, and will undoubtedly enhance our position as a thought-leader in disputes resolution and arbitration in Asia.”

Since 2008, Rajah & Tann Asia has been recognised as one of the top 100 arbitration practices in the world according to the Global Arbitration Review 100 (GAR100). Its team of international arbitration specialists across ten member firms of Rajah & Tann Asia have now come together as contributors to the website, casting a spotlight on thought leadership and current issues in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution.
