Dear Members,

The COVID-19 virus situation in Singapore continues to evolve. Members will no doubt be aware that, on 7 February 2020, the Government raised the DORSCON alert level to Orange and issued further advice for dealing with the current situation.

Amongst other things, the Government has advised organisers of non-essential large events to cancel or defer them. In light of this advice, SIArb has taken the decision to postpone this month’s CPD seminar (Developments in Singapore Arbitration, with Professor Lawrence Boo and Ms Christine Artero, scheduled for 12 February). Members and others who had registered for the seminar will receive a separate notice of postponement. We will seek to reschedule the seminar at a later date once the risk from the coronavirus has subsided.

SIArb will keep the situation under review and monitor further advice from the Government. If it becomes necessary to take further appropriate actions, including postponing or cancelling further events, we will inform members by email and on our website.

The well-being and safety of our members is our paramount consideration. We urge all members to adhere to the health and travel advisories issued by the Government. Please take care of yourselves.

16 December 2019


December is upon us. It is a fitting time to look back at what 2019 has brought us.

On 26 Nov 2019, we launched the Singapore Arbitration Journal, a joint initiative with the Singapore Academy of Law. Members will all receive complimentary copies. I would like to congratulate the General Editor Mohan Pillay, Editor Chan Leng Sun SC and Publishing Editor Yeo Boon Tat for seeing this vision through from conception to delivery. We are also very grateful to the advisory board of VK Rajah SC, Toby Landau QC, Loretta Malintoppi and Prof Lawrence Boo for taking time to guide us. Not to be forgotten are the invaluable team of Assistant Editors, Ramandeep Kaur, Matthew Koh, Janice Lee, Mahesh Rai, Tan Hai Song, Benjamin Tham, and Derric Yeoh. The aspiration behind the journal was to produce a world class platform for thought leadership on global arbitration issues yet with a Singapore focus. I believe we have achieved that with this first issue and work is already underway to continue this. I hope the journal inspires you to consider making future contributions.

This year we also launched the SIArb Annual Lecture. We were very privileged to have Toby Landau QC with us to speak on “Arbitral Groundhog Day: The Problem of Repeat Claims and Issues in Arbitration”. I understand that Toby will be publishing a paper on this in the next edition of the Singapore Arbitration Journal so we look forward to that.
