How has Maxwell Chambers looked to adapt to the changing needs of ADR professionals?
Virtual and hybrid hearings are now the new norm.
In response to the increase in hybrid proceedings, Maxwell Chambers invested in state of the art video conferencing equipment to facilitate high-quality hearings. Maxwell Chambers’ virtual hearings team comprises both specialist AV/IT technicians to ensure connectivity and moderators trained in virtual hearing protocols to facilitate effective and efﬁcient hearings. Maxwell Chambers provides parties with an integrated solution – combining our hearing services with options for case management platform, evidence presentation, real-time transcription and translation.
To provide international clients with a seamless experience and to extend our services on a global scale, Maxwell Chambers also teamed up with Arbitration Place of Toronto and London’s IDRC to launch a new alliance - IACA (International Arbitration Centre Alliance) to offer global hybrid hearings. This partnership maximises resources and eliminates distance and time-zone challenges for parties when planning multi-jurisdiction hearings.
What are some of the strengths of Maxwell Chambers today? And what are some of the developments ADR professionals can look forward to in the near future?
Maxwell Chambers draws strengths from its heritage and foundation, infrastructure and facilities, quality ADR hearing services and the support from partners and stakeholders in the ADR community. Singapore is now ranked as the top arbitration seat, not just regionally, but globally. Maxwell Chambers is the world’s ﬁrst integrated ADR complex and houses the most number of international institutions in the world including the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.
Aside from 24/7 in-person, hybrid and virtual hearings, Maxwell Chambers has been engaging with arbitral participants to better understand their requirements and working with technology providers to package their offerings. We are working on building our strong foundations with innovative and transformative technologies to recreate the Maxwell experience virtually and expand our global footprint. We look forward to sharing these updates in due course.
