Linpave v Gillingham FC

Citation: Arbitration Vol. 69, No.2 p.144 TCC

Nature of case:
Failure to consider a valid reverse offer in arbitration would be an error of law.  The court thought that “while specific consequences are attached to such an offer in the CPR and while the CPR does not directly apply to arbitration, arbitrators may, in my view, by analogy, wish to recognise the existence of a successful reverse offer by way of an enhancement of the awards they would otherwise make of interest and costs.”
