Aceris Law’s Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe, i.e., where Zimbabwean law applies, a contract is executed in Zimbabwe, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Zimbabwe, or the Zimbabwean State or a Zimbabwean 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 States in the Southern African Development Community.
We can meet clients directly in Harare, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Zimbabwe Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Zimbabwean jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking native English amongst other languages.
Our Zimbabwe Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Zimbabwean 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 Zimbabwe.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving States in the Southern African Development Community and sub-Saharan Africa more generally. For example, Aceris Law’s Zimbabwe Arbitration Lawyers Desk represented an investor in an SADC Member State with respect to an investment dispute concerning an iron ore mine. 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 further 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.
By having a dedicated team of arbitration lawyers for arbitrations concerning Zimbabwe, Aceris Law ensures that arbitrations involving Zimbabwe 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.
