Aceris Law’s Philippines 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 the Philippines, i.e., where Filipino law applies, a contract is executed in the Philippines, the dispute is brought by or against a party in the Philippines, or the State or a Filipino 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 the Philippines and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Manila 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 Philippines Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Filipino jurisprudence and doctrine.
Our Philippines Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Filipino 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 Philippines.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving the Philippines and Southeast Asia. For example, Aceris Law’s Philippines Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a Filipino client in a JAMS arbitration against an American technology supplier that was settled on favourable terms. We also represented a Southeast Asian company in an arbitration with a large European plane manufacturer, another in a dispute with a large German 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 against Southeast Asian subsidiaries of multinational corporations.
