Injunctive and emergency relief in and for international arbitration proceedings

Thursday 24 October | 18:00 Registration, 18:30 – 19:30 Talk

Pinsent Masons MPillay LLP
182 Cecil Street
#32-01 Frasers Tower
Singapore 06954728

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.

Event programme

Welcome – Chair: Nicholas Brown, Pinsent Masons MPillay LLP

Part 1: Who to ask for urgent relief
Philip Riches, Twenty Essex
Practical ways through the barriers to injunctive relief: invoking the emergency relief jurisdiction; particular considerations in complex arbitrations

Part 2: What to ask for in court
Paul Lowenstein QC, Twenty Essex
Using the English court to secure assets for the enforcement of international arbitral awards

Part 3: The arbitrator’s perspective
Sir Mark Havelock-Allan QC, Twenty Essex
Practical considerations arising on applications for emergency relief

Part 4: Issues for international arbitral tribunals
Prof Julian Lew QC, Twenty Essex
Supporting national court injunctions, security for costs and anti-suit injunctions

Questions – Moderated by Chen Han Toh, Pinsent Masons MPillay LLP

Refreshments and close.
