CNPLaw’s dispute resolution team authored the Singapore chapter in the 13th edition of the Dispute Resolution Review. This review is published by The Law Reviews and covers an overview of civil court systems of 28 jurisdictions. It provides a guide to those who are faced with disputes across international boundaries.
The Singapore chapter touched on issues such as an overview of the dispute resolution framework, the year in review, court procedures, legal practice, documents and the protection of privilege, and alternatives to litigation such as arbitration, mediation and other forms of dispute resolution.

With globalisation providing not only a myriad of opportunities but also increased challenges in dealing with the various stakeholders, disputes are bound to arise in the normal course of businesses and transactions.
At CNPLaw, our dispute resolution lawyers seek to provide support to our clients through the lifecycle of transactions. At the very beginning, we seek to mitigate risk and avoid disputes. However, should it transpire to the latter, our lawyers work closely with our clients to either resolve the matter through alternative dispute resolution matters like arbitration and mediation, or through litigating the matter, either in the civil or criminal courts. We have extensive legal experience at every level of the Singapore courts of justice, and our lawyers have appeared in a number of cases reported in the Singapore Law Reports.
