CIArb APAC Director speaks to members of the SICC about International Arbitration

12 Nov 2019

On Wednesday 6 November 2019, CIArb APAC Director, Camilla Godman FCIArb delivered a talk to members of the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC) about the benefits and features of International Arbitration, together with leading Singapore dispute resolution practitioner (in both court litigation and international arbitration), Lawrence Teh FCIArb of Dentons Rodyk & Davidson.

Talk to SICC members

The talk looked at how the particular process of dispute resolution chosen by the parties may make a world of difference in evidence, time and costs. Camilla covered  the essential features of arbitration. Lawrence broke down an arbitration clause into its components and explained the meaning behind the words. The speakers compared the merits of choosing arbitration clauses over exclusive or non-exclusive court jurisdiction clauses. 

The talk was well attended, mainly by in-house legal counsel and also by individuals from the Singapore business community. There was a lively Q&A session after the talk with many attendees enquiring about aspects of drafting dispute resolution clauses. 

Refreshments were provided by Dentons Rodyks after the talk.

Lawrence and Camilla plan to present a series of such talks to members of the Legal Interest Group at SICC.
