An Introduction to London Maritime Arbitration & the English Courts
The dynamics in the relationship between the Courts and London Maritime Arbitration will be of interest to and inevitably at some stage impact on those with a connection with the maritime industry.
Whether it is a litigating party considering removing an arbitrator on the basis of an alleged appearance of bias or attempting to appeal an award on findings of fact dressed up as issues of law, or indeed for those considering the merits of London Maritime Arbitration generally and whether to adopt contractual clauses in favour of the same, rather than the English courts.
This webinar will look at recent and relevant case law, including Laysun Service Co Limited v Del Monte International GMBH; Halliburton Company v Chubb Bermuda Insurance Ltd, the relevant provisions of the Arbitration Act 1996 (sections 24 and 69), as well as maritime arbitration clauses generally.
