Gateway’s International Arbitration Practice Group is helmed by experienced practitioners, Simon Dunbar and Kevin Lim.
Before joining Gateway, Simon and Kevin spent a combined 25 years in top-tier international law firms. They have represented clients from Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle-East in complex and high-stakes international arbitrations, and have successfully argued “bet the company” claims worth billions of dollars.
Combined, they have been involved in approximately 100 international arbitrations. This puts our practice among the most experienced arbitration teams in the region.
As a specialist arbitration team, we are able to provide our clients with international expertise from the platform of a Singapore law practice. Not only do we handle all arbitrations from start to finish, including advocacy at trial, we can also provide pre-dispute advice on Singapore law, and represent our clients in related Singapore court litigation. This makes us a “one stop shop” for our clients’ global disputes needs.
We have particular expertise in joint venture, energy, technology, telecommunications, hospitality, real estate, infrastructure, and investor-state disputes.
Simon and Kevin also sit regularly as arbitrator, and have issued multiple awards in complex commercial disputes. They are Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb) and are included on arbitrator lists and panels of major arbitral institutions in Asia, including the SIAC, HKIAC, AIAC, and THAC.
