How far does an arbitrator need to go in disclosing appointments in multiple references, concerning similar subject matter, where a common party is involved?
This time last year, SCMA held an evening talk on the Duty of Disclosure in relation to the Court of Appeal decision in Halliburton v Chubb. That decision was appealed to the Supreme Court and the long-awaited judgment was recently handed down on 27 November 2020. SCMA returns to the fore and brings to our community the voices of some of the highly regarded counsel that appeared at the appeal.
In this event, SCMA will look at the implications of the English Supreme Court decision on international commercial arbitration with a particular focus on maritime disputes.
The programme is as follows:
6:00pm – 6:05pm (SGT) – Introduction by Lawrence Teh
6:05pm – 6:20pm (SGT) – About the case by The Hon. Sir Bernard Eder
6:20pm – 6:40pm (SGT) – Maritime and commercial arbitration perspective by Christopher Smith QC
