Aceris Law is pleased to have successfully resolved yet another ICC arbitration. Approximately one-third of the arbitrations where Aceris Law serves as counsel are construction-related, one-third are other types of commercial arbitrations (especially in the fields of aviation, energy, finance and technology) and one-third are investor-State arbitrations. This dispute, which had been running since 2016, concerned a number of claims and counterclaims in relation to the construction of a wastewater treatment plant.
“Disputes concerning wastewater plants are far from the sexiest disputes for international lawyers, and this is only one of two wastewater projects where we are currently involved,” said William Kirtley of Aceris Law. “Still, it is always a pleasure to jump in and unblock a situation for clients, after negotiations have failed for many years. It did not take long to force the opposing party to come to their senses, after our excellent team helped to set forth our clients’ arguments with clarity and sufficient supporting evidence.”
