Update 15:01 - April 05, 2022

Arbitration is one of our core expertise. We have represented and assisted clients before various arbitration institutions such as Badan Arbitrase Nasional Indonesia (BANI), Singapore International Arbitration enter (SIA), International court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (I) as well as under various ad-hoc arbitration under UNITRAL Arbitration Rules. Aside from representing clients before arbitral tribunal, we also assist clients in the drafting of arbitration clause in order to avoid the unenforceability of such clause. The drafting of arbitration clause often to be underestimated during contract drafting stage. This is why we often hear about ‘midnight clause’, which means that the clause is drafted at the end of the contract negotiations, when the whole structure of the contract has been set out. As a result, we often find arbitration clause that is pathological which ends up unenforceable. To avoid this, our team an assist clients to draft an arbitration clause that is suitable with the type of the transaction. Further, our lawyers also handle enforcement of domestic as well as foreign arbitral awards in Indonesia.
