Why Arbitrate in Singapore

Businesses today increasingly operate in an international context. When disputes arise, many prefer less adversarial alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes to litigation.

ADR can bring about win-win outcomes that are enforceable in multiple jurisdictions. In Asia especially, with the maturing of markets and the growing sophistication of businesses, awareness and use of ADR has been rapidly rising.


Singapore, with its reputation for impartiality and integrity, world-class ADR institutions and outstanding dispute resolution professionals, is recognized as a preferred venue for ADR in Asia. According to the 2021 Queen Mary University of London and White & Case International Arbitration Survey, Singapore was tied for first place as the top seat of arbitration in the world, and the most preferred seat of arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region.
