Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration


9th July 2020

This webinar by James Thompson and Jennie Wild takes place at 10am (UK time) and covers Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration. Whilst the focus of the talks are on international arbitration, the principles discussed will have wider application.

Jennie will outline the principles relevant to conflicts of interest in international arbitration, including the fiduciary duty of loyalty, and related principles such as the Bolkiah test; and (2) consider the application of such principles to expert witnesses in the case of A Company v X [2020] EWHC 809 (TCC).

James will then consider the position in relation to arbitrator impartiality and the awaited decision of the UK Supreme Court in Halliburton v Chubb, and how some of the major institutional rules deal with challenges to arbitrators.
