It is rare for the Supreme Court to consider arbitration matters. 2020 saw two very significant decisions: Enka v Chubb and Halliburton v Chubb. These will, to a greater or lesser extent, shape English arbitration for many years to come.
The questions remain:
(a) which of the two cases will prove to be the most significant in the long-run and why, and
(b) how do they impact on London as an arbitration centre and stand up to international comparison.
In this session, Peter Ashford, Partner at Fox Williams, Iain Quirk QC, Barrister at Essex Court Chambers, Sarah Vasani, Head of Investor State Dispute Resolution at Addleshaw Goddard and Colin Liew, Advocate at Duxton Hill Chambers (Singapore Group Practice) will discuss Enka v Chubb and Halliburton v Chubb and how they impact on London as an arbitration centre.
