Aceris Law’s Seychelles 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 Seychelles, i.e., where Seychelles law applies, a contract is executed in the Seychelles, the dispute is brought by or against a party in the Seychelles, or the Seychelles State or a 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 Seychelles or neighbouring States.
We can meet clients directly in Victoria, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Seychelles Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to domestic jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking French and English. William Kirtley, the founder of Aceris Law is an American and French national, admitted to the New York and Washington bars and a former member of the Paris Bar, with fifteen years of experience in the field of international arbitration. Dr. Marie-Camille Pitton is an internationally-educated French arbitration special counsel at Aceris Law, registered as an attorney in New York and registered at the Versailles Bar with over a decade of experience in international arbitration.
Our Seychelles Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Seychelles 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 Seychelles.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving the Seychelles and East Africa more generally. For example, Aceris Law’s Seychelles Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented a company from the Seychelles in an arbitration regarding a mining project in southern Africa and assisted a client involved in a dispute under the law of the Seychelles. We have provided legal representation to an East African client serving as a contractor in cross-border construction projects, have provided legal advice regarding an expropriation claim concerning an East African State and have served as counsel in a public international law dispute involving East Africa, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning the Seychelles, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving the Seychelles 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.
