Whereas the jurisdiction to grant anti-suit injunctions is an ancient one with roots in equity and the English Court of Chancery, the jurisdiction to grant urgent relief is of quite recent, statutory origins. Both procedural innovations were the handiwork of commercially minded lawyers, and, amid the current era of globalisation in the context of furthering international arbitral solutions, those remedies have gone global. Commercially minded courts, supporting the arbitral tribunals in the discharge of their entrusted missions, and the tribunals themselves, are devising, recognising or refining some very interesting further innovations. This CIArb event brings together five leaders in the field, to present from their own distinctive insightful perspectives on the current principles and practices of injunctive and emergency relief, and some of the emergent strategies.
