Aceris Law’s Sri Lanka 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 Sri Lanka, i.e., where Sri Lankan law applies, a contract is executed in Sri Lanka, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Sri Lanka, or the Sri Lankan State or a Sri Lankan 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 Sri Lanka and neighbouring States.
Our Sri Lanka Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Sri Lankan 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 Sri Lanka.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Colombo 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 Sri Lanka Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Sri Lankan jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking native English.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving South Asia. For example, Aceris Law’s Sri Lanka Arbitration Lawyers Desk provided legal advice in relation to the expropriation of a business in a South Asian free trade zone. It also represented a client in an ICC construction arbitration against a South Asian Contractor and our lawyers represented a South Asian client in a dispute against a German company, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Sri Lanka, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Sri Lanka 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.
