Whether you are acting for the Claimant or the Respondent in an arbitration obtaining an award may only be half the battle.

This virtual classroom seminar will look at the steps required to have an arbitration award recognised and enforced in England.

You will also look at the options available to challenge, or set-aside an award, and to resist recognition and enforcement.

The live session will explore the position in relation to domestic awards where England is the seat, awards rendered outside England, as well as awards for or against sovereign states under the ICSID Convention.

Also covered will be the rules around enforcement against sovereign assets or state-owned companies and enterprises, including issues of service and sovereign immunity.

What You Will Learn

This live broadcast will cover the following:

  • The rules on seeking to set aside an English-seated award under section 67, 68 and 69 of the Arbitration Act, and the current proposals for reform in this area proposed by the Law Commission
  • The process of obtaining recognition of a foreign award in the UK, and the available grounds for resisting recognition
  • The English court’s approach to recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards
  • The impact of the two categories of state immunity on the recognition and enforcement of an arbitral award against sovereign states, including under the State Immunity Act 1978
  • The separate rules that apply to enforcement under the Arbitration (International Investment Disputes) Act 1966
  • An update on recent case law including Payward, Infrastructure, Deutsche Bank, and ADM
