Aceris Law’s Bhutan 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 Bhutan, i.e., where Bhutanese law applies, a contract is executed in Bhutan, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Bhutan, or the Bhutanese State or a Bhutanese 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 Bhutan and neighbouring States.
We can meet clients directly in Thimphu, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference.
Our Bhutan Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to domestic Bhutanese 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 Bhutan. Our Bhutan Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Bhutanese jurisprudence and doctrine.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving South Asia. For example, Aceris Law’s Bhutan Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a client in an ICC construction arbitration against a contractor from South Asia. It also represented a South Asian client in a dispute against a large German company, and it has provided legal advice in respect of investor-State arbitrations against Bhutan’s neighbours, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team for arbitrations concerning Bhutan, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Bhutan are handled efficiently and cost-effectively, making the best use of our arbitration lawyers’ know-how as well as linguistic and cultural skills.
