It is not uncommon for Singapore-based parties to international contracts to have their disputes resolved by litigation in the UK, or arbitration in London.

Singapore is recognised as a leading legal hub in Asia with an efficient and expert judiciary. It offers parties a neutral venue for resolving disputes whether through litigation, arbitration or mediation.
