Over the last 15 years, Singapore has made strides to establish itself as one of the major centres for international dispute resolution. Today, it provides parties with a full suite of dispute resolution services: arbitration in the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), litigation in the Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC), and mediation in the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC). This book is the first of its kind to offer a full-service guide to international dispute resolution in Singapore.
A Guide to international Arbitration, Litigation, and Mediation in Singapore c ommentates, analyses, and compares the three dominant forms of dispute resolution, allowing practitioners to select the most suitable option for their particular dispute. The book is split into 5 parts: Part I provides an introduction to Singapore as a hub for international dispute resolution, Part II looks at Arbitration (under SIAC, the ICC, ASCMA, SIA, ad hoc, and investor-state arbitration), Part III analyses international litigation in Singapore and the role of the SICC, Part IV covers mediation services, and Part V compares the merits of each of the three offerings before looking at the future of dispute resolution in Singapore.
This is an essential resource for all practitioners intersted in how the different forms of dispute resolution in Singapore work, and an indespensible guide to how they can be best utilised by clients and counsel.
