GAR Volume 14 - Issue 2
In our cover story, we hear from a true luminary in the field of construction arbitration. Chris Seppälä, the chief legal adviser to FIDIC, gave a keynote speech at last year’s GAR Live: Construction Disputes 2018, on his own career, how we’ve got to this point and where we may end up.
In our other features, Reed Smith lawyers Kohe Hasan and Justine Barthe-Dejean take a look at Singapore’s announcement that it is considering allowing appeals of arbitration awards on a point of law.
There is also an assessment of the Svea Court of Appeal’s decision in the PL Holdings case from Stephen Fietta of Fietta Law and Robin Oldenstam of Mannheimer Swartling in Stockholm, who represented the claimant in that case, and a prediction on what the African Continental Free Trade Area will mean for investment arbitration.
Finally, Alexey Yadykin of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer considers what the HKIAC’s Russian licence could mean for the arbitration of M&A disputes in the country.
