Andrew Goddard QC and Shourav Lahiri will discuss “Challenges to arbitral awards on jurisdictional grounds” with Kim & Chang‘s Sungjean Seo and Byung Woo Im in a seminar organised by Kim & Chang on Tuesday 14 December.
The panel will address recent legal developments with relevance to international projects in the construction/infrastructure, energy and shipbuilding sectors.
In this session, they will examine a number of recent cases in the courts of the UK and Asia Pacific dealing with challenges to arbitral awards founded on jurisdictional grounds.
The cases raise questions that are matters of concern for the parties and for the tribunal alike: what issues are before an arbitral tribunal for decision, how the scope of these matters may change as the arbitration progresses, how an award may purport to decide issues beyond the tribunal’s power and the distinction between law, fact and jurisdiction.
