Our goal is to do everything that is in a client’s interest, which includes providing clients the best value for their legal expenditures in the field of international arbitration, while leaving no stone unturned to ensure a successful outcome.
With lawyers admitted to multiple bars in Europe and North America, Aceris provides first-rate legal representation for arbitrations under English law, Swiss law, French law, New York law, OHADA law, Turkish law, Saudi law, public international law, and the laws of many other common law and civil law jurisdictions.
The working languages of Aceris are English and French, although our lawyers also speak Spanish, Serbian, Romanian, German, Russian and Arabic, and they have previously served as counsel in cases with Chinese, Turkish, Japanese, Portuguese and many other linguistic elements.
Aceris works hand-in-hand with other members of the IAA Network, whose highly-regarded lawyers are based in Paris, London, Madrid, Geneva, Singapore, New York, Los Angeles, Istanbul and South Africa.
It also works closely with in-house legal counsel of clients, allowing them to play as significant a role in the resolution of their company’s dispute as they desire, and it frequently collaborates with co-counsel who have less prior experience in the intricacies of arbitration law and procedure but are looking for a firm that rigorously respects the boundaries of pre-existing client relationships.
Aceris also provides pro bono legal representation for certain international arbitrations and public international law disputes. It currently serves as lead counsel for the former British protectorate of Barotseland, a Germany-sized former State in Southern Africa seeking independence from Zambia after five decades of treaty violations.
