With 2018 being the 60th anniversary of the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards 1958 (New York Convention), the theme for this issue is enforcement. Lawyers from across our global firm review various trends and developments in this area, including current approaches to enforcing awards that have been set aside at the seat and the use of the public policy exception as a bar to enforcement. We provide a practical guide to bringing enforcement proceedings, and offer strategic tips for in‑house counsel on how to best position themselves from the outset in order to secure payment of their claim at the end of the day.
In our global round‑up of arbitration developments, we review recent reforms to institutional rules around the globe, including new LMAA Terms, new DIS Rules, proposed amendments to the HKIAC and DIAC Rules, as well as the newly launched AIAC (formerly branded as the KLRCA). We also cover proposed amendments to UAE arbitration law.
