|Does the post-Halliburton landscape provide “closure on disclosure” for appointments in London maritime arbitration?|
The focus of this webinar is to discuss the implications for the maritime industry of the recent Supreme Court Judgement in Halliburton v Chubb.
In its landmark decision handed down on 27th November, the Supreme Court has confirmed and clarified the obligation on arbitrators to make disclosures in overlapping multiple appointment situations to avoid doubts as to their impartiality, while highlighting and distinguishing the unique characteristics of LMAA and other sector – focussed arbitration.
