Aceris Law’s Liberia 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 Liberia, i.e., where Liberian law applies, a contract is executed in Liberia, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Liberia, or the Liberian State or a Liberian 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 Liberia and neighbouring States.
Our Liberia Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Liberian 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 Liberia.
We have the ability to meet clients directly in Monrovia and maintain permanent access to offices in Abidjan and Dakar, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland.
Our Liberia Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Liberian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking English, which is the language commonly used in disputes concerning Liberia. William Kirtley, the founder of Aceris Law is an American and French national, admitted to the New York and Washington bars and a former member of the Paris Bar. He worked in West Africa for years in the 1990’s, prior to studying law in North America and Europe.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Liberia and West Africa more generally. For example, Aceris Law’s Liberia Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a West African client operating in Liberia against a major company involved in a public works project before an ICC tribunal in a dispute under Liberian law. We have also provided legal representation in disputes concerning West Africa in the domains of agriculture, mining, logistics and construction, while providing legal advice to clients concerning investment disputes involving West Africa.
