Partner of Interlegal became a member of SCMA
Artur Nitsevych, partner of Interlegal, has become a member of the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA). The aim of the SCMA is to provide a framework for maritime arbitration which is responsive to the needs of the maritime community. The SCMA has members from all sectors of the maritime community.
Asia controls a significant share of world tonnage and also a significant share of cargo importers and exporters, both trading globally and Intra-Asia. Therefore it is appropriate that there should be a maritime arbitration hub within Asia and within the Asian time zone. Singapore is regarded the best place for this because:
(a) A strong legal and maritime tradition;
(b) An international maritime centre, with a large maritime community represented by head quarters, branch offices and subsidiaries;
(c) Cosmopolitan with some 33% of the population being foreigners;
(d) Wide language skills, with excellent English spoken by all professionals;
(f) Excellent transport connections to and from Singapore;
(g) Safe location, etc.
Artur Nitsevych is the only SCMA member practicing law in Ukraine and countries of Black Sea Region.
