Aceris Law’s Swaziland 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 Swaziland, i.e., where Swazi law applies, a contract is executed in Swaziland, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Swaziland, or the Swazi State or a Swazi 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 Swaziland and neighbouring States.
Our Swaziland Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to domestic Swazi 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 Swaziland.
We can meet clients directly in Mbabane, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Swaziland Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to basic Swazi jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking native English.
We also have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving Swaziland and other States in the SADC. For example, Aceris Law’s Swaziland Arbitration Lawyers Desk served as counsel in a dispute concerning Swaziland’s mining industry. We have also advised foreign investors with respect to disputes concerning the expropriation of land, and we have served as legal counsel in a public international dispute involving an SADC Member State. We have also represented clients in ICC construction arbitrations throughout sub-Saharan Africa and have been involved in a number of disputes in the fields of infrastructure and Government services, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Swaziland, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Swaziland 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.
