As U.S. companies increasingly invest in, source components and goods from, or export to, Asia, they must decide on an appropriate dispute resolution procedure. For commercially significant deals, mandatory arbitration is typically required by contracts. The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) has moved aggressively to position itself as one of the premier arbitration institutions in the world, and particularly for Asia-based or U.S.-Asia disputes.

We are honored to present Minn Naing Oo, the CEO & Registrar of the SIAC. He will engage in an interactive discussion about:

  • The future of ADR in Asia
  • The advantages of Singapore over other cities as the arbitration venue
  • SIAC’s state of the art features, such as emergency arbitrators, expedited procedures, and a scrutiny of award process
  • The inside story on how party costs are calculated by the arbitral provider


  • Minn Naing Oo, CEO & Registrar, Singapore International Arbitration Centre
  • Cedric Chao, Co-Chair, International Arbitration Practice, Morrison & Foerster LLP

A question and answer session will follow the presentation, and written materials will be distributed.

This talk is relevant to corporate counsel, transactional lawyers, and litigators.

Morrison & Foerster LLP (Provider #2183) certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit by the State Bar of California in the amount of 1 hour.
