Aceris Law’s Afghanistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in arbitrations concerning Afghanistan, i.e., where law of Afghanistan applies, a contract is executed in Afghanistan, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Afghanistan, or the State of Afghanistan or an Afghan State entity is involved.
Aceris Law’s Harvard, Oxford and Sorbonne trained lawyers are admitted to bars of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and North America and have significant prior experience dealing with commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitrations under the ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, LCIA, SCC, SIAC, ICDR, VIAC and other arbitration rules, which have concerned Central Asia and South Asia.
We can meet clients directly in Kabul, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Afghanistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Afghanistan jurisprudence and doctrine.
Our Afghanistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk also maintains ties to the best domestic Afghan lawyers, who are involved depending on the specific needs of a given arbitration. This ensures that our clients obtain the best arbitration legal representation while also maintaining cost-effectiveness for arbitrations involving Afghanistan.
