CIArb's Alexander Lecture on the Dallah Case.

We have earlier posted on the Dallah v Pakistan case here and here and there was some discussion here too.

In this year's Alexander Lecture, President of the UK Supreme Court and CIArb Patron The Right Hon the Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers will analyse the judgments made by the Supreme Court and the Paris Court of Appeal in the landmark case of Dallah v Pakistan.  Lord Phillips will consider why the two courts came to different conclusions, exploring the possible implications for the arbitration community as a whole.

Dallah Real Estate and Tourism Holding Company v The Ministry of Religious Affairs, Government of Pakistan is arguably a case which has been waiting to happen for years. An award rendered in Paris to be enforced in London saw the English courts seeking to determine whether a government could be liable to honour an arbitration award rendered against it in relation to a contract and arbitration clause which did not name it as a party.

As a former eminent arbitration practitioner and President of the Supreme Court, Lord Phillips had a unique front-row seat in the proceedings and is ideally placed to offer his observations on a case which has gripped the arbitration community in recent months.

The lecture takes place on November 16 in London. More information on the event can be accessed here.
