A new Court of Arbitration overseeing the case administration and arbitral appointment functions of SIAC has now been established. The corporate and business development functions of the Centre will continue to be overseen by the Board of Directors. Both the new Board and the Court assumed office on 1 April 2013.
The new Board is chaired by Mr Lucien Wong, Chairman and Senior Partner of Allen & Gledhill LLP. The Board is made up of prominent lawyers and corporate leaders from China, India, Korea, the UK and Singapore. The profiles of our Board members are available on our website here. The Board is principally concerned with the operation and development of SIAC's business and its corporate governance functions.
The SIAC Court of Arbitration is led by Founder President Dr Michael Pryles. The Court comprises 16 leading arbitration practitioners from around the world, including Bahrain, Belgium, China, France, India, Japan, Singapore, the UK and the USA. The profiles of our Court members are available on our website here. The main functions of the Court are the appointment of arbitrators, the determination of challenges to arbitrators and case administration.
The Board and Court conducted their first meetings at Maxwell Chambers on 5 August 2013. At a cocktail reception later that evening hosted by Court member Mr Alvin Yeo, MP and SC, at his firm's premises, leading arbitrators and practitioners from Singapore's legal community were invited to meet with the Board of Directors and Court of Arbitration.
