Supporting Organization

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) is an international association of business and commercial lawyers who live in, or otherwise have a strong interest in, the Asia-Pacific Region. It was established in April 1991 at an organizing conference held in Tokyo attended by more than 500 lawyers from countries within the Asia-Pacific Region. Since then, it has grown to become a pre-eminent legal association in this Region, with membership drawn from throughout the world, and currently has over 1,300 members from over 60 national jurisdictions worldwide.

In today’s increasingly interconnected world, most international trade and business transactions will usually involve at least one Asian party or jurisdiction. When commercial disputes arise, Hong Kong provides the ideal venue for speedy and reliable solutions. 

The Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) was founded in 1985 to provide an independent forum for resolving international business disputes and has emerged as one of the leading centres as Asia’s leading international dispute resolution services provider.  Located in “Asia’s World City,” the HKIAC provides a range of services to help you find the right solution for your business. 

As the center and platform of dispute resolution activities in Hong Kong, the HKIAC’s flexible and full-service administration capabilities serve the needs of parties seeking to resolve their disputes.   The HKIAC administers arbitrations in accordance with its Administered Arbitration Rules and has the statutory authority to decide the number of arbitrators and appoint arbitrators in ad hoc arbitrations.  Further, the HKIAC has its own set of Mediation Rules and a wide variety of other rules which may be adopted for mediating particular disputes.  The HKIAC also holds a list of accredited mediators from which to appoint upon request by a party.  In addition, the HKIAC administers a number of specialised dispute resolution schemes, including domain name disputes, registered transfer disputes and internet keyword disputes, etc. 

Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) was established in July 1991 as a not for profit non- governmental organisation to meet the demands of the international business community for a neutral, efficient and reliable dispute resolution institution in Asia.

SIAC’s operations are overseen by a Board of Directors that comprises luminaries in the international arbitration arena.

  • Appointment of arbitrators when they cannot agree on an appointment;
  • Management of the financial and other practical aspects of arbitration;
  • Facilitation of the smooth progress of arbitration.

SIAC has an international panel of over 320 independent arbitrators with a spread of expertise, depth of knowledge and experience. 177 of those experts are based in the Asian region.

SIAC is renowned for our first rate arbitration rules and detailed practice notes which promote transparency, give parties confidence and arbitrators certainty.
