  • Getma v Republic of Guinea— implications for African arbitration
    • Authors: Sarkodie K; Otoo J.
      Abstract: AbstractAgainst a backdrop of the increasing activity and prominence of African arbitration institutions, this case note takes a detailed look at a recent high-profile case concerning one of the major African arbitration bodies, the OHADA Common Court of Justice and Arbitration (CCJA), and looks at what lessons may be drawn for African arbitration.In Getma International v Republic of Guinea, a US court refused to confirm and enforce an arbitration award in favour of French company Getma International, which was subsequently annulled by the CCJA. The CCJA annulled the arbitral award after it was found that the arbitrators had breached their mandate and the rules of the court by negotiating directly with the parties to secure an increase in their fee, in breach of the CCJA’s fee scale. A particular feature of this long running saga was the unusual step the arbitrators took in publicly criticizing the CCJA in an open letter to the international arbitration community, spurring extensive comment and discussion.This piece goes further than just commenting on the US court decision and considers some of the wider questions and implications for African arbitration more generally.

  • Tipping the balance – diversity and inclusion in international
           arbitration
    • Authors: Greenwood L.
      Abstract: AbstractSince publishing ‘Getting a Better Balance on International Arbitration Tribunals’ in Arbitration International Volume 28, Issue 4 in 2012 and ‘Is the Balance Getting Better? An Update on the Issue of Gender Diversity in International Arbitration’ in Arbitration International Volume 31, Issue 3 in 2015, the author has witnessed an increase both in women’s visibility in international arbitration and in general awareness of this issue. There has been a significant change in attitudes in a short period of time. However, translating the change in attitudes to a meaningful change in the number of appointments to tribunals of women and other diverse candidates, as well as more junior arbitrators, will only result from a change in the amount of information available to parties when they appoint arbitrators. The author attributes the lack of diversity in this field to the issue of information asymmetry and the problem of the ‘solicited feedback loop’ and believes that increased transparency and greater access to information is the only way to secure significant change.

  • Separability and stage one of the Sulamérica inquiry
    • Authors: Primrose B.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article considers stage one of the three-stage inquiry in Sulamérica and the extent to which the doctrine of separability impacts on that inquiry. In particular, this article questions the circumstances in which the parties’ express governing law clause in the underlying contract will constitute an express choice of law governing the arbitration agreement. This article concludes that if the doctrine of separability is not applied then the governing law clause in the contract may be an express choice of the law governing the arbitration agreement, and whether the doctrine of separability should be applied may be in the respondent's hands. Finally, this article proposes that parties explicitly specify the law that governs the arbitration agreement in the arbitration agreement itself, even when the parties intend for the arbitration agreement to be governed by the same law that governs the underlying contract.

  • Shopping for a better deal: the use of MFN clauses to get ‘better’
           fair and equitable treatment protection
    • Authors: Dumberry P.
      Abstract: AbstractThe present article analyses the following question: can a most favoured nation (MFN) clause contained in an investment treaty that includes a fair and equitable treatment (FET) standard clause be used by an investor to claim the benefit of a better FET protection found in other treaties entered into by the host state? Tribunals have so far all accepted the importation of better FET protection through MFN clauses. The question is important in light of the fact that new treaties are increasingly containing FET clauses with a restrictive scope.

  • Summary judgment in international arbitrations seated in England
    • Authors: Chong P; Primrose B.
      Abstract: AbstractInternational arbitration is sometimes criticised for being inefficient and expensive. The adoption of summary judgment procedures is one way in which the practice of international arbitration might be improved. However, tribunals may be hesitant to adopt summary judgment procedures for fear that they do not have jurisdiction or that the summary award will be unenforceable or set aside. From the perspective of the English jurisdiction, this article discusses the barriers to adopting summary judgment procedures, compares the English position with the US and International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) positions, and proposes an approach to summary judgment procedures that could be adopted by tribunals constituted under the supervisory jurisdiction of the English courts.

  • State responsibility and the enforcement of arbitral awards
    • Authors: Sepúlveda-Amor B; Lawry-White M.
      Abstract: AbstractThe place of arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism for disputes involving states and investors depends upon the value accorded to a valid award. Many states voluntarily comply with awards rendered against them. However, the occasions of non-compliance may result in the incurrence of international responsibility by states pursuant to both customary and treaty norms. This article considers some of these norms, as well as the bases on which states dispute responsibility for non-enforcement of arbitral awards or avoid execution. To this end, the various sections of this article examine: (i) the relevance of customary norms of state responsibility to investment arbitration; (ii) scenarios in which the refusal of national courts to enforce arbitral awards have been found to incur state responsibility by breaching an investment treaty; (iii) scenarios in which a state’s refusal to respect an award rendered against it by an investment tribunal might incur international responsibility and relevant issues such as immunity; and (iv) the role of the International Court of Justice and, its predecessor, the Permanent Court of International Justice in upholding the integrity of arbitral proceedings, including by adjudicating the validity of arbitral awards rendered against states.

  • Third-party funding in investment arbitration: how non-disclosure can
           cause harm for the sake of profit
    • Authors: Shaw GJ.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article highlights the need for a mandatory disclosure requirement with regards to a third-party funder in all cases where a funder is present. As it currently stands, the funder is not a formal party to the proceeding and has no blanket obligation to disclose its involvement. While the 2014 Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration require the disclosure of a funder’s involvement, this requirement is limited to instances where a previous relationship between an arbitrator and a funder exists. In all other arbitrations, there is no disclosure requirement. In such cases, a funder is free to exercise a controlling interest over the proceedings while operating in the shadows unbeknownst to the tribunal or the opposing party. This article introduces a number of scenarios where a funder’s undisclosed involvement may harm the parties to the proceedings, including the funded party. In particular, undisclosed funders have the ability to use information against a formerly-funded party in a subsequent proceeding and even to fund both sides of the dispute in an effort to maximize profits.

  • Should the European Union regulate commercial arbitration?
    • Authors: Gaffney J.
      Abstract: AbstractThe European Union (EU or ‘Union’) does not regulate commercial arbitration. This article reflects on whether regulation of commercial arbitration by the Union is appropriate, necessary, and warranted. It reviews the background to, and the context in which, this issue has arisen, discusses the historical reasons why arbitration has not been separately regulated by the EU, and examines the scope of existing regulation of arbitration in Europe, both internationally and at Member State level. Additionally, this article considers whether the EU is competent to regulate this area and whether such regulation is warranted with reference to core principles of EU constitutional law. In particular, it considers whether the introduction of EU regulation of arbitration would be a proportionate response to perceived gaps. The article also reviews the potential scope of EU regulation. It concludes that such regulation would only be justified to the extent that conflicts issues could be meaningfully addressed by EU action, in furthering the creation of an area of freedom, security, and justice, in a number of discrete areas. The article suggests that legislators ought to avoid harmonizing unnecessarily the law of arbitration in the EU, in light of the comprehensive coverage already provided by the New York Convention and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law, and recommends that the EU should encourage its Member States to adopt the Model Law to the fullest extent possible, which, together with the New York Convention, should serve to further the harmonization of arbitral regulation within the EU.

  • W(h)ither adversarial commercial dispute resolution?
    • Authors: Rajah VK; SC.
      Abstract: AbstractInternational commercial arbitration is part of a wider tapestry of transnational commercial dispute resolution which encompasses both adversarial and consensual forums. While arbitration is pre-eminent in the field today, the increasing discontent directed at the international commercial arbitration industry, and adversarial commercial dispute resolution more generally, cautions us that the status quo cannot remain. This article will hence focus on the challenge to adversarial commercial dispute resolution posed by consensual forums like mediation, and the future of transnational commercial dispute resolution in this changing world.Key ReferencesSingapore Rules of Court, Order 110 (2015)Rio Tinto PLC v Vale SA US District Court (SDNY) (2015)Emirates Trading Agency LLC v Prime Mineral Exports Private Limited, English High Court (2014)International Research Corp PLC v Lufthansa Systems Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, Singapore Court of Appeal (2014)HSBC Institutional Trust Services (Singapore) Ltd v Toshin Development Singapore Pte Ltd, Singapore Court of Appeal (2012)SIAC (Singapore International Arbitration Centre)-SIMC (Singapore International Mediation Centre) Arb-Med-Arb Protocol (2014)IBA (International Bar Association) Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration (2013)AQZ v ARA, Singapore High Court (2015)

  • The proper law of the arbitration agreement: Mainland Chinese and English
           law compared
    • Authors: Yang F.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article compares the recent Mainland Chinese and English cases regarding the proper law of the arbitration agreement. It explains the similarities and differences between English and Mainland Chinese courts’ approaches to the determination of the proper law for international arbitration agreements. It identifies deficiencies in those approaches and argues that both English and Mainland Chinese courts should adopt the pro-validation principle in the determination of the relevant issues concerning the proper law for international arbitration agreements. It proposes that Mainland Chinese law should be amended to give effect to the parties’ intentions and objectives in submitting their disputes to international commercial arbitration, as mandated by the New York Convention.
