Description of Product

A Practical Guide to the SIAC Rules offers a detailed, article-by-article commentary on the latest version of the SIAC Rules, which were launched in the latter part of 2016. Written in a practical and accessible style, it provides references to relevant court judgments and statutory provisions. The Guide is a product of extensive research on the Rules, in particular, on the operation and impact of many of the new provisions since their very recent introduction. From the Foreword by Mr Gary B. Born, President of SIAC Court of Arbitration: This work, by experienced and respected international practitioners, therefore comes at an opportune moment, adding to the growing body of international arbitration commentary in Singapore and on SIAC. . . . The comprehensive scope of the book and the range of its analysis is a testament to the experience of its authors and the institutional strength of their practice. The systematic approach of the book will make it tremendously helpful to practitioners and users alike and I am confident that the book will become an essential point of reference for the international arbitration community in Singapore and beyond. The Honourable Chan Sek Keong, Chief Justice of Singapore (11 April 2006 – 5 November 2012): The SIAC Rules were revised in a number of important procedural areas in 2016, making all commentaries or guides out of date. This practical guide written by a team of experienced arbitration counsel from Clifford Chance is an indispensable guide to all aspiring arbitrators who are not familiar with the SIAC Rules and is invaluable to those arbitrators who have no time to keep up with current court decisions on the SIAC Rules. Mr Toby Landau, Queen’s Counsel, Member of SIAC Court of Arbitration: This is a comprehensive and masterful work on the 2016 SIAC Rules. The book tracks the chronology of a typical SIAC arbitration from beginning to end, with a rule-by-rule commentary. Detailed textual analysis has been combined with scholarly discussion (by reference to a wide range of international and comparative materials) as well as the expert and practical insights of the authors—all of whom are leading figures in international arbitration with a wealth of experience. SIAC arbitration is now one of the most popular forms of institutional arbitration with an increasingly worldwide reach. This book will undoubtedly become the essential companion for all those involved in or contemplating the process. But more than this, given the depth of its treatment of issues common to all types of arbitration, this is an extremely valuable resource for practitioners in general. Mr Darius Khambata, Senior Counsel, Member of SIAC Court of Arbitration: A Practical Guide to the SIAC Rules is exactly what it says it is—an excellent roadmap to negotiate an arbitration through the SIAC Rules. It will be of delight and assistance to every practitioner of SIAC arbitration, not the least Indian lawyers who are increasingly stepping out into the world of international commercial arbitration. India is the largest user of SIAC arbitration and with this comes the need for Indian lawyers to understand and work under its rules, largely procedural but also touching upon areas of substantive law and jurisdiction.
