Authored Publication: Rajah & Tann Singapore has contributed a chapter titled “The rise of arbitration in the Asia-Pacific” to “The Asia-Pacific Arbitration Review 2023” (“the Review“) as published by the Global Arbitration Review (“GAR“), a leading resource on international arbitration news.

Arbitral hubs and institutions in Asia have reached new heights in growth and popularity, augmented by the generally pro-arbitration stance taken by the countries in the region. Authored by Rajah & Tann Singapore partners Kelvin Poon (Deputy Managing Partner and Head, International Arbitration), Avinash Pradhan (Deputy Head, International Arbitration), and Andre Yeap SC (Senior Partner, International Arbitration), the chapter examines recent developments in Singapore and other parts of Asia, including the growing profile of arbitral seats and institutions, and steps taken by institutions to update their rules to remain competitive with international arbitral institutions.

The Review contains insight and thought leadership on recent events, with contributions from 53 pre-eminent practitioners across the nine jurisdictions of Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. To read the review in full, please click here.
