ASA Profiles is a fully searchable database of specialists: counsel, arbitrators, mediators, as well as legal and technical experts. With its advanced search functions, you can search for specialists based on a variety of criteria, such as area of specialisation, legal background and bar admission, languages, nationalities, countries of residence, gender, as well as level of experience with specific laws, seats, and institutions. 

In addition, the platform provides access to deeper insights into the individuals through the listing of referees who can be contacted for further feedback. This way, you can get a better understanding of someone’s experience, skills, and reputation before making your final decision.
