International Arbitration Guide

Describe the international arbitration governing bodies/structure in your jurisdiction.

Arbitration is generally governed under Law No. 30 of 1999 on Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Furthermore, the government of Indonesia has expressed its openness with the ratification of New York Convention of 1958. The Arbitration Law governs all domestic and foreign arbitrations recognized under Indonesian Law. In Indonesia, arbitration is organized by Indonesian National Arbitration Board, an independent arbitration board.

Describe any unique circumstances in your country that affect international arbitration (i.e., change in government, etc.).

The Arbitration Law provides an arbitral award rendered outside Indonesia (a foreign arbitral award) could only be enforceable if the relevant arbitral award is registered in Central Jakarta District Court. Additionally, such award can be annulled if the documents submitted during the arbitration process are false, being hindered, or the award is determined from misdirection effort.

Please provide a brief overview of your firms international arbitration capabilities (team members, experience as litigators in arbitration as well as experience as arbitrators).
