Herbert Smith Freehill’s Global Arbitration Practice has been ranked amongst the top five busiest in the world as part of the prominent annual Global Arbitration Review (GAR) 30 rankings. Our Australian practice is fully integrated into our global arbitration practice and in February 2023, we launched the Asia Arbitration Hub, which aims to support clients along the Asia-Australia corridor in their cross-border disputes. This is led by Chad Catterwell and James Allsop, partners based in our Melbourne office, who previously spent many years practising law in China and Japan, respectively. We are frequently called upon by clients to advise in relation to major international disputes in Asia (including China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam) and elsewhere.
