Rajah & Tann Asia recognised among world's top 100 international arbitration practices for 15 consecutive years

Rajah & Tann Asia has been recognised among the world's top 100 International Arbitration Practices by The Global Arbitration Review (GAR100) for 15 consecutive years. This recognition highlights the team’s exceptional expertise and dedication to providing outstanding legal counsel in the field of international arbitration.

Maintaining the largest portfolio of work among the vast majority of firms in Asia, our Regional International Arbitration team has acted in significant multi-billion-dollar matters across the region. Highlights include acting for a conglomerate in a US$21 billion SIAC arbitration over alleged breaches of non-disclosure agreements; acted for a former government official in relation to a US$2.5 billion investment arbitration under the US-Vietnam trade agreement; and defending a Vietnamese state-owned company in an over US$3 billion SIAC arbitration over a thermal power plant project.

Our lawyers have also acted for governments including Laos, Lesotho, Indonesia, the Philippines, Kazakhstan, the Maldives and Mauritius’s State Trading Corporation in international arbitration matters.

Clients have praised our top-notch Regional International Arbitration team, with one client commenting we are “proactive, solution-focused, diligent, and did an outstanding job preparing 10 inexperienced witnesses for the arbitration hearing," while others also lauded the vast experience of our regional Partners.

Kelvin Poon, SC, Head of the International Arbitration Practice at Rajah & Tann Singapore, said: “We are honoured to be recognised by the GAR100 once again. This achievement reflects our dedication as a regional network in providing high-quality legal services to our clients as well as our commitment to continuously improve our skills and knowledge in the field of international arbitration.”

The GAR 100 is an annual ranking of the world’s top 100 law firms with specialist international arbitration practices.
