WATCH: Arbitration Breakfast Briefing: Multi-party arbitrations, the joinder of non-parties to an arbitration agreement and disputes under multiple contracts
Thursday 11 February 2021
9am - 10am UK time
In the second of our 2021 series of Arbitration Breakfast Briefings, Stuart Isaacs QC, Stephen Brown and Jia Wei Lee will discuss current issues relating to the conduct of multi-party arbitrations, the joinder of non-parties to an arbitration agreement and disputes under multiple contracts.
The discussion will provide an opportunity to consider the conflict of laws issues which can arise when non-parties to an arbitration agreement are joined into an arbitration and the determination of the proper law of an arbitration agreement. It will also consider new rules which work to accommodate multi-party arbitrations and disputes under multiple contracts, including the new joinder provisions in the ICC Arbitration Rules which came into force on 1 January 2021 and the 2020 changes to the LCIA Rules which came into force on 1 October 2020, as well as the amendments introduced by Singapore’s International Arbitration (Amendment) Act 2020 to facilitate multipartite arbitration.
