Singapore is striving towards becoming a leading hub for the resolution of cross-border disputes and the provider of legal solutions to international parties in Southeast Asia. Parties seeking to resolve their disputes in Singapore are presented with a choice of dispute resolution forums including the Singapore International Commercial Court, the SIAC and the Singapore International Mediation Centre.
Singapore is a party to the New York Convention, Singapore Convention and Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements. It seeks to be a centre where legal solutions not only have to be quick and efficient but also effective in terms of result.
Users of Singapore’s legal framework should strive to be well advised not only of the procedures in the local court system but also of the wide variety of solutions that are on offer.

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.
