Aceris Law’s Uganda 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 Uganda, i.e., where Ugandan law applies, a contract is executed in Uganda, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Uganda, or the Ugandan State or a Ugandan 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 Uganda and neighbouring States.
We have permanent access to office in Kampala 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 Uganda Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Ugandan jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking native English.
Our Uganda Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Ugandan 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 Uganda.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving East Africa. For instance, 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 a neighbouring East African State, have served as counsel for an East African client in a dispute concerning the mining industry and have served as counsel in a public international law dispute involving East Africa. Aceris Law has also served as counsel in multiple commercial arbitrations between African and European companies.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Uganda, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Uganda 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.
