Chambers and Partners recognises Ben as a “Most in Demand Arbitrator” in the Asia-Pacific Region, stating: “Independent Seoul-based practitioner Benjamin Hughes is consistently identified by sources as the pre-eminent international arbitrator on the South Korean scene, and is active across the region on a broad commercial range of issues…  He is very highly regarded by interviewees, one of whom notes: ‘We have encountered him on several cases in the past few years and have found him to be excellent,’ while another notes specifically that he is ‘a very good chairman who is really good at running expert witness conferencing sessions.’”


WWL says: Benjamin Hughes is “the best arbitrator in Korea” according to commentators, who describe him as “a pleasure to appear before” and as someone who “delivers well-reasoned awards”.
