Aceris Law’s Panama 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 Panama, i.e., where Panamanian law applies, a contract is executed in Panama, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Panama, or the Panamanian State or a Panamanian 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 Panama and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Panama City 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 Panama Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Panamanian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking Spanish and English.
Our Panama Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Panamanian 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 Panama.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Central American countries. For example, Aceris Law’s Panama Arbitration Lawyers Desk provided legal advice in the pre-arbitration phase for American investors concerning a real estate dispute under the Central American Free Trade Agreement CAFTA. Our lawyers also provided advice to a Canadian company regarding an ICSID arbitration against a Central American State involving a mining concession. We have also provided legal advice for Latin American clients with respect to commercial disputes against international organisations and European companies, for instance serving as counsel in ICC arbitrations in the logistics and manufacturing sectors.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Panama, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Panama 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.
