The Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC)
With increasing globalisation and trade in Asia, instances of commercial disputes are expected to rise. The Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC) was established as a trusted neutral venue to meet the anticipated demand for effective international commercial dispute resolution services in Asia.
As a division of the Singapore High Court and part of the Supreme Court of Singapore, the SICC comes with features that enable parties to gain access to swift and quality justice. For example, cases will be managed and heard by experienced Judges—specialist commercial Judges from Singapore and international Judges from civil and common law traditions.
Parties also have different options for representation. They may, in certain circumstances, be represented by foreign lawyers who are registered with the SICC.
The SICC adopts a set of flexible court procedures, which follow international best practices in commercial dispute resolution. For instance, parties can apply for their proceedings to be confidential, or mutually seek that proceedings be governed by rules of evidence of their choice.
The SICC is built on the strong foundations of the Supreme Court of Singapore, which has been recognised for its integrity, fairness and efficiency, and is established as a trusted and neutral dispute resolution forum of choice for businesses engaged in international transactions.
