Session 10: The Future Of Singapore As An International Dispute Resolution Centre – Should All Paths No Longer Lead To London Or New York

The traditional dispute resolution hubs of London and New York have many years of precedent and experience on their side, both for wet and dry shipping, and insurance disputes.
