Aceris Law’s Myanmar 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 Myanmar, i.e., where Burmese law applies, a contract is executed in Myanmar, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Myanmar, or the Burmese State or a Burmese 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 Myanmar and neighbouring States.
Our Myanmar Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Burmese 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 Myanmar. Our Myanmar Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Burmese jurisprudence and doctrine.
We can meet clients directly in Yangon, although we are always available to clients, regardless of their location, through videoconference.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Myanmar and Southeast Asia. For instance, we have served as counsel in an ICC arbitration in the aviation industry in Myanmar. We also 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 against a large European company involving a failed joint venture and another 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.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Myanmar, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Myanmar 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.
