Aceris Law’s Haiti 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 Haiti, i.e., where Haitian law applies, a contract is executed in Haiti, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Haiti, or the Haitian State or a Haitian 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 Haiti and neighbouring States.
Our Haiti Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Haitian 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 Haiti.

Our Haiti Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Haitian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking French and English, which are languages commonly used in disputes concerning Haiti.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations in Haiti and the Caribbean.
