Arbitration isn’t something we do on the side, it’s what we do every day

Dzungsrt & Associates LLC is consistently placed at the top of international arbitration in all major legal directories, including Chambers, Legal 500, Benchmark Litigation and Asia Law. Quite a number of matters that we handle are highly contentious in the sense that they involve claims against state-owned companies or governmental entities, or are in connection with treaty claims, or arise out of politically charged criminal investigations

In the investor-state arbitration space, we are frequently sought after by giant global law firms to act as co-counsel in high-stakes investor-state arbitrations whenever it comes to Vietnamese matters. We acted for global corporations and foreign investors in the matters brought under contracts and bilateral, regional and multilateral treaties. 

Our team worked on sensitive and complicated issues in a broad range of industries such as energy, hospitality, etc. .In most cases, some of the key issues are related to the change, bureaucracy, or lacuna of the legal and political system. We seek amicable, negotiated settlements and act at every stage of the investment arbitration process, including challenging and enforcing awards, appearing as advocates at hearings.
