Dispute Resolution

By facilitating international arbitration, litigation and even debt collection, we provide
pragmatic solutions to the variety of disputes that can arise in the ASEAN region.

With the benefits of the globalization of the Japanese economy has also meant that  Japanese businesses
have increasingly entered into more foreign markets, thereby increasing the number of both corporate and
“political” disputes arising in the extensive international arena. As experts in litigation, arbitration and
alternative dispute resolution methods, we view this area of legal practice as central to our operations. With the advantage of numerous offices across the ASEAN region, we provide borderless legal services with special
understanding of all forms of dispute resolution.

1 International Arbitration

Lengthy international litigation is an expensive and time-consuming proposition. Arbitration as an alternative in dispute resolution method on the rise. However, it requires expertise and comprehensive knowledge in the
relevant area, along with localized experience. Our people have experience working as arbitrators and agents
in the ICC, Singapore Arbitration Centre (SIAC) Kuala Lumpur (KLRCA), Vietnam Arbitration Centre (VIAC),
and the Indonesia Arbitration Committee (BANI). One Asia Lawyers have the skills to provide pragmatic
strategic advice to our clients.

In our Singapore member firm, one prominent member of our staff is a former lecturer on international dispute resolution at the prestigious Harvard University. We offer an unmistakable advantage in arbitration and
mediation.

2 Litigation Within the ASEAN Region

Unfortunately, as companies expand their operations into the ASEAN region, so does the number of Japanese companies consumed by international litigation. Local courts operate significantly different than their
counterparts in Japan. Each member firm of One Asia Lawyers has accumulated years of experience dealing with cases before ASEAN local courts making us the local experts in the fields of company and intellectual
property laws, employment laws, and tax disputes. We have experience in virtually all areas in which
corporations can become involved, or entangled, in a foreign country.

3 Asset Investigation and Security Collection

Realizing security interests in ASEAN countries is a complicated and difficult process. As there are limited
means for investigating assets, many companies are left without remedies. One Asia Lawyers has developed
close working relationships with local asset investigators. We have established both the networks and
resources needed to conduct discreet and thorough investigations for our clients. Based on the results of an
investigation, we advise our clients on their next steps to enable the most favorable outcome.

By facilitating international arbitration, litigation and even debt collection, we provide pragmatic solutions to the variety of disputes that can arise in the ASEAN region.
