Geographic Location and Time Neutrality

Through effective utilisation of audio-visual telecommunication technologies, Ahsan ensures that irrespective of the physical location of the parties, their representatives, witnesses and experts, and the time zones in which they may be located, the entire arbitral process is undertaken without the need for the parties, their representatives, witnesses and experts to leave their locales. To ensure that the sanctity of the arbitral process is not compromised in providing such convenience, Ahsan has developed detailed protocols which are required to be adhered to by the parties, their representatives, witnesses and experts.
