ANNOUNCEMENT

International Dispute Resolution Survey

The Singapore International Dispute Resolution Academy (SIDRA) has launched the International Dispute Resolution Survey to help corporations make strategic decisions on dispute resolution options, and to inform policy makers, dispute resolution institutions, and legal service providers on the dispute resolution needs of corporations.

Conducted by SIDRA and commissioned by the Singapore Ministry of Law, the Survey seeks to put together a comprehensive and robust understanding of how corporations resolve their cross-border commercial disputes and the reasons for their choices.

The Survey is focused on users of international dispute resolution mechanisms, primarily corporations that operate internationally in cross-border contexts. For this reason, the profile of users selected is exclusively limited to top C- Suite Executives, and lawyers involved in international dispute resolution. The Survey is the first of its kind in terms of scope and methodology.

SIDRA looks forward to your participation in this survey if you have been involved in international dispute resolution in the last 3 years.

SIDRA has engaged the Forensic Services department of PwC South East Asia Consulting to administer the Survey.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

It has been an eventful start for the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators (SIArb) for 2019.

In 2018, SIArb launched the Guidelines on Party-Representative Ethics (“Guidelines”). It was thus timely that the year kicked off with a discussion on the issue of party representative ethics on 24 Jan 2019. Are such guidelines of any real value? What practical steps could be taken to ensure that such guidelines are effective. It was a robust discussion chaired by Chan Leng Sun SC, with valuable insights from Mr Gary Born, Michael Hwang SC, Professor Lucy Reed and VK Rajah SC. The global diversity of standards and the lack of any common regulator emerged as a key obstacle to a clear pathway forward. My own takeaway is that the existence of challenging obstacles must not deter us. Ethics is ultimately fundamental integrity, which is foundational to international arbitration. SIArb is committed to working with our members, arbitral institutions, bar associations and end-users towards always raising the bar on the issue of ethics. It is when we suddenly find ourselves thinking that ethics is not important or beyond control that we would be too far down the slippery slope.
