Beyond its well-established role as a business hub for Asia, with its open economy, and efficient and highly competent judiciary, Singapore provides an ideal base for doing business in Asia

Our lawyers are well-connected in Singapore and across Asia, and regularly assist international clients with their legal needs in the UK as well as in other parts of Asia, including Singapore.

Marsans’ expertise in arbitration, litigation and in advising on commercial transactions, including commercial and residential property deals, makes it very well placed to assist both UK and Singapore-based clients with their legal needs.

Litigation and Arbitration – UK

English law is recognised internationally for providing commercially-sound and well-developed rules that can give parties certainty as to their contract, while the English courts are equally well recognised for the expertise of their judges in all types of international transactions. It is not uncommon for Singapore parties to international contracts to rely on the courts in England to enforce their rights. Our lawyers are able to assist in multiple areas of commercial litigation and arbitration with particular areas of expertise being: intellectual property, banking law, insurance and reinsurance law, civil fraud, construction, property disputes, energy, insolvency, shipping, international sales and international law.

  • Company/Shareholder disputes
  • Insurance/Reinsurance
  • Civil fraud
  • Construction
  • International sales
  • Property disputes
  • International law
  • Partnership disputes
  • Banking/Financial disputes
  • Corporate and personal insolvency
  • Energy
  • Shipping
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • International investment arbitration

Litigation and Arbitration – Singapore

Singapore is recognised as a leading legal hub in Asia with an efficient and expert judiciary. It offers parties a neutral venue for resolving disputes whether through litigation, arbitration or mediation. Singapore’s reputation in this regard was enhanced by the creation of the Singapore International Commercial Court in 2015 where cases involving non-Singapore parties or subject-matter are heard. With rapidly growing economies, Asian countries are attracting substantial foreign investment, a significant part of which is routed through Singapore.

Asian contracting parties are also more frequently choosing Singapore law to govern their contracts or choosing Singapore as the venue for any dispute resolution proceedings. With strong connection to the Singapore bar and lawyers across Asia, Marsans can successfully guide you through the dispute resolution process in Singapore as well as other Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
