SIAC Seoul Office

SIAC Seoul Office
Seoul, Korea

In 2013, SIAC established its second overseas liaison office in Seoul, Korea. The office embodies SIAC's commitment to develop and enhance the active interest in international arbitration in Korea.

In the last few years, we have seen an increasing number of Korean parties in cases filed with SIAC. Korea was the third top foreign user for 2015, a marked increase from being the sixth top foreign user in 2014. The total sums in dispute for cases involving Korean parties in 2015 increased to more than four times the amount of the total sums in dispute in 2012. Recognising the importance of Korean parties to SIAC's international caseload, SIAC established a presence in Korea to enhance its visibility and accessibility to the business and legal communities in Korea.

The activities of the SIAC Seoul Office will be activities related to dissemination of market information and liaison activities, including the following: to facilitate the dissemination of necessary information on arbitration at SIAC and in Singapore; to create a line of communication for SIAC and the community in Singapore with key players for international arbitration in Korea; to liaise and deliver practical information necessary to lawyers and corporate users for the effective use of SIAC arbitration as a dispute resolution option; and to liaise and deliver continuous feedback from Korean parties on SIAC's services as an arbitral institution.

SIAC's Seoul Office does not administer arbitrations. The function of administering arbitrations under the SIAC Rules continues to be handled by SIAC's multinational Secretariat in Singapore, irrespective of the seat of arbitration or the nationality of disputing parties.
