Aceris Law’s Algeria 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 Algeria, i.e., where Algerian law applies, a contract is executed in Algeria, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Algeria, or the Algerian State or an Algerian 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, many of which have concerned Algeria and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Algiers, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Algeria Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Algerian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking French, English and Arabic.
Our Algeria Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Algerian 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 Algeria.
All of our lawyers speak French and English fluently.
