About Maxwell Chambers

Maxwell Chambers is the world’s first integrated Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) complex housing both best-in-class hearing facilities as well as top international ADR institutions.

Centrally located in the heart of Singapore’s business district, it is housed within two conserved buildings of architectural and historical significance with a stately neo-classical façade.


The main building at 32 Maxwell Road was originally designed as the Customs House in the early 1930s. It offers 39 custom-designed hearing and preparation rooms available for your selection, together with a full suite of supporting services.


In addition to conducting 24/7 physical hearings, Maxwell Chambers now offers an option to conduct both virtual or hybrid hearings, while catering to clients across different time zones. Leveraging on its state-of-the-art hearing capabilities and video conferencing platforms, Maxwell Chambers maintains its stronghold in the ADR arena through its neutrality and confidentiality of all legal proceedings regardless of the platforms used. Aside from legal hearings, the facilities can also be used for meetings, seminars and conferences.


The new expansion at 28 Maxwell Road, Maxwell Chambers Suites, houses the local offices of top international ADR institutions, chambers, law firms and ancillary services. It is seamlessly connected to the best-in-class hearing facilities at Maxwell Chambers via link bridge.
