Aceris Law’s Togo 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 Togo, i.e., where Togolese law applies, a contract is executed in Togo, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Togo, or the Togolese State or a Togolese 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 Togo and neighbouring States.
We can meet clients in Lomé, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference.
Our Togo Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Togolese 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 Togo. Our Togo Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Togolese jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking French and English.
