Aceris Law’s Malawi 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 Malawi, i.e., where Malawian law applies, a contract is executed in Malawi, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Malawi, or the Malawian State or a Malawian 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 Malawi and neighbouring States.
Our Malawi Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic lawyers in Malawi, 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 Malawi. We can meet clients directly in Lilongwe, although we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, through videoconference.
Our Malawi Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Malawian jurisprudence and doctrine.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving States in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and sub-Saharan Africa more generally. For example, Aceris Law’s Malawi Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented an investor in an SADC Member State with respect to an investment dispute concerning an iron ore mine. We have also advised foreign investors with respect to disputes concerning the expropriation of land, and we have served as legal counsel in a public international dispute involving an SADC Member State. We have further represented clients in ICC construction arbitrations throughout sub-Saharan Africa and have been involved in a number of disputes in the fields of infrastructure and Government services.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Malawi, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Malawi 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.
