Aceris Law’s Brunei 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 Brunei, i.e., where Bruneian law applies, a contract is executed in Brunei, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Brunei, or the Bruneian State or a Bruneian 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 Southeast Asia.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Bandar Seri Begawan 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 Brunei Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Bruneian jurisprudence and doctrine concerning arbitration.
Our Brunei Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to domestic Bruneian 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 Brunei.

For example, Aceris Law’s Brunei Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a client in an ICC construction arbitration against an opponent from South Asia, we have provided legal advice to a client considering an investment arbitration against a South Asian State and we have served as counsel for a South Asian company with a commercial dispute against a large German company.
