Aceris Law’s Laos 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 Laos, i.e., where Lao law applies, a contract is executed in Laos, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Laos, or the Lao State or a Lao 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 Laos and neighbouring States.
Our Laos Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Lao 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 Laos.
Our Laos Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Lao jurisprudence and doctrine. William Kirtley, the founder of Aceris, worked in Laos and Southeast Asia prior to studying law in North America and Europe. We maintain permanent access to offices in Bangkok to meet and work with clients, although we also have the possibility of meeting clients directly in Vientiane or our home office in Geneva, Switzerland.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Southeast Asia. For example, Aceris Law’s Laos Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a distribution company in Southeast Asia against an American company in California, successfully settling the dispute on behalf of our client. We also represented a Southeast Asian company in an arbitration with a large European plane manufacturer, another in a dispute with a large German company involving a failed joint venture and a client from Southeast Asia in a mining dispute taking place in Southern Africa. We have also served as legal representatives in disputes concerning Southeast Asian subsidiaries of multinational corporations and published on disputes with Laotian elements.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Laos, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Laos 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.
