GAR Awards 2021: Most Important Decision shortlisting

Published: Wednesday 23 June 2021

We are delighted to announce that VRG Linhas Aéreas v MatlinPatterson has been nominated in the “Most Important Decision” category at this year’s GAR Awards (read more here). The case was heard in the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal last year and saw Brazilian airline VRG’s ICC award enforced in Cayman Islands, overturning the earlier decision of the Grand Court. Thomas Lowe QC acted for the successful appellant (VRG) and was instructed by Marc Kish and William Jones of Ogier. You can read the full judgment here.

The awards ceremony will be held online on Thursday 1 July from 5.30pm. We wish all those shortlisted the best of luck.
