A Changing World: International Arbitration for Commercial Disputes in an Integrated ASEAN

When: 10 October 2016

Where: Novotel Yangon Max, Yangon, Myanmar

DFDL, in collaboration with Nabarro LLP, conducted a seminar on “A Changing World: International arbitration for commercial disputes in an integrated ASEAN” on Monday, 10 October 2016 at the Novotel Yangon Max, Yangon, Myanmar, with the participation of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).

International commercial arbitration has risen in popularity with parties in Asia as a means of dispute resolution for resolving transnational commercial disputes. As the ASEAN markets continue on the path of integration, transnational economic activity is expected to grow, raising the need for fair and effective means of dispute resolution to match the increase in this transnational commercial activity.


Participants in this seminar heard from experts in international dispute resolution on effective dispute resolution for transnational investments and contracts within the ASEAN region. They discussed the following:

  • Enactment of new Arbitration Law 2016 in Myanmar – Mr. William D. Greenlee, Jr., Partner and Managing Director, Myanmar
  • The fundamentals of international commercial arbitration as a means of resolving transnational commercial disputes – Mr. Steven Lim, Managing Partner, Nabarro LLP Singapore
  • Effective resolution of cross-border disputes in ASEAN  –Mr. Kevin Nash, Deputy Registrar and Centre Director, SIAC
