Pratices Arbitration Beyond being distinguished as one of the premier trial firms in Vietnam, the LeTran legal team is also recognized as one of the leading specialists in resolving disputes through arbitration. This includes active support to foreign law firms in advising and explaining the relevant rules, case law, procedures and government directives under Vietnamese law when disputes are resolved by foreign arbitration bodies. LeTran advises and represents clients during arbitral proceedings, including the use of effective strategies, tactics, procedures. Over the years, LeTran has successfully developed the experience and skills which fully encompass the entire arbitration process. This includes filing a lawsuit in arbitration, effectively representing clients before the arbitral tribunal, the use of legal experts, protecting the rights and interests of the client, and representing clients in requesting revocation/recognition of the arbitral award. Le Tran utilizes the appropriate strategies, tactics and techniques which are shaped to suit the client’s interests and needs. For example, issues surrounding the contractual arbitration provision, as well as documents and evidence to be used in the proceedings, are all regarded as unique and are applied on a case-by-case basis. Because an arbitral award is final without the opportunity of appeal (which is distinct from a judgment of a court which can be appealed to a higher level), diligence and attention to every single detail and procedure is essential. Understanding that every step taken is critical, the arbitral services provided by LeTran are always given the highest priority and undertaken by our knowledgeable, creative, and diligent team which ensures the protection of the best interests of the client. In addition, LeTran has been recognized as an authority in arbitration law by the legal and business community. As an example, several foreign companies in Vietnam recently requested a workshop on the important topic of arbitration. LeTran, in cooperation with the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham Vietnam), prepared and conducted a successful workshop/seminar on December 12th, 2019 entitled “Losing points – Arbitration Procedures”. As such, not only does Letran remain committed to the best interests of its foreign and domestic clients, we are at the forefront of developments in the practice of arbitration law.
