Seminar on "Singapore Arbitration for Korean Companies"
For a second consecutive year, our firm and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) held a joint seminar titled "Singapore Arbitration for Korean Companies" on August 31, 2011 at the Lotte Hotel Seoul with Mr. Minn Naing Oo and Ms. Rachel Foxton of SIAC as key speakers.
The seminar was used to introduce SIAC as well as Singapore arbitration to various in-house counsels of Korean companies. In addition to comparing Singapore with other major jurisdictions as the seat for arbitration proceedings, the seminar also discussed some of the differences between SIAC and other leading arbitration institutions such as ICC and LCIA, as well as SIAC's recent experiences with Korean companies engaged in arbitrations.
Messrs. Byung-Chol Yoon, Jun Hee Kim and Kay-Jannes Wegner of our firm also led discussions on various other check list items that the in-house counsel of Korean companies should consider when preparing for and being involved in international arbitration cases.
