Aceris Law’s Belarus 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 Belarus, i.e., where Belarussian law applies, a contract is executed in Belarus, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Belarus, or the Belarussian State or a Belarussian 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 Belarus and neighbouring States.
We maintain access to offices in Minsk to meet and work with clients, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Belarus Arbitration Lawyers Desk has access to Belarussian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking Russian and English.
Our Belarus Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Belarussian 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 Belarus.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Belarus and CIS States. For example, Aceris Law’s Belarus Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a Ukrainian client in a case involving Belarus’ steel tube industry. We have also served as counsel in an ICSID arbitration involving a CIS State concerning the telecommunications industry, have served as counsel in an UNCITRAL arbitration in the oil and gas industry involving a CIS State, have provided legal advice to other lawyers involving investment arbitrations in neighbouring States and have represented clients from CIS States in various commercial arbitrations under the SCC and ICC arbitration rules, inter alia.
