Aceris Law’s Japan 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 Japan, i.e., where Japanese law applies, a contract is executed in Japan, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Japan, or the Japanese State or a Japanese 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 Japan and neighbouring States.
Our Japan Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Japanese 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 Japan.
Our Japan Arbitration Lawyers Desk has access to Japanese jurisprudence and doctrine and we maintain permanent access to offices in Tokyo, Japan, to meet and work with clients, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Japan and East Asia more generally. For example, Aceris Law’s Japan Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a Japanese investor in an investment dispute against an East Asian State regarding the indirect expropriation of an investment. We have also served as legal counsel for East Asian clients in distribution disputes against American companies in the high-technology industry and have served as counsel in multiple ICC and LCIA construction arbitrations involving East Asian general contractors.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Japan, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Japan are handled efficiently, making the best use of our arbitration lawyers’ know-how as well as linguistic and cultural skills, which are important for the successful outcome of an international arbitration.
