Aceris Law’s Pakistan 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 Pakistan, i.e., where Pakistani law applies, a contract is executed in Pakistan, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Pakistan, or the Pakistani State or a Pakistani 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 Pakistan and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Karachi to meet and work with clients although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Pakistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Pakistani jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking native English.
Our Pakistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Pakistani 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 Pakistan.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Pakistan and South Asia. For example, Aceris Law’s Pakistan Arbitration Lawyers Desk co-represented a Pakistani client in ICC arbitration proceedings against a large French company. We have also provided legal advice with respect to a dispute involving a Pakistani entity and the defence industry. We have also co-represented a South Asian client during the post-award procedure regarding the annulment of an ICC arbitral award, served as counsel in an ICC commercial arbitration between a German company and a South Asian company, represented a South Asian foreign investor in a mining dispute in southern Africa and provided legal advice to a South Asian national with a dispute in the textiles industry.
