Commercial Arbitration and Mediation

Overview

Webber Wentzel has expertise and experience in local, cross-border and international commercial arbitration and mediation including administered and ad hoc arbitration. We advise our clients on a wide range of complex, high-value arbitrations in a broad range of industry sectors. Our practitioners provide our clients with specialist know-how and quality of service of the highest calibre.

The comprehensive and determined legal representation we offer is essential for achieving a favourable outcome in arbitration and is critical to achieving a good commercial resolution.

We handle arbitrations conducted under the auspices of various arbitral institutions including the Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa (AFSA), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). We are also skilled in conducting ad hoc arbitrations in accordance with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).

We are founding members of AFSA and have representation on its Board of Directors and Management Committee. We also have representation on the board of Africa ADR, a newly registered arbitral institution established for the resolution of cross-border disputes.
