With over 15 years of experience as an attorney, Dr Cheng has also served as tribunal chair or co-arbitrator in more than a dozen arbitrations with between $5 million and $8billion at stake, and is a member of the arbitration panels of arbitration institutions in North America, Europe and Asia.

Dr Cheng has been recognised in Chambers Global and Chambers USA for international arbitration; GAR; Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration Future Leaders (2017); Benchmark Litigation’s Rising Stars; Benchmark Litigation’s Under 40 Hot List; and Euromoney’s Guide to the World’s Leading Experts in Commercial Arbitration. Awards rendered by Dr Cheng have been confirmed by US district and appeals courts as well as non-US courts. A US court has complimented one of Dr Cheng’s awards as “thorough and well-reasoned”.

He is an elected fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators, the American Law Institute and the Foreign Policy Association, and serves on the boards of several professional and civic associations.
