Arbitration law in Australia - 2021 Year in review
2021 saw a diverse range of novel and interesting arbitration related questions arise in the Australian courts.
In this newsletter, HFW charters some of the key developments arising from these cases before the courts, ranging from clarifying the scope of an arbitration agreement for non-contractual claims to addressing ICSID award enforcement relating to Spanish solar farm industry investments.
The Australian courts continue to support the arbitral process, contributing to a rise in the volume of arbitrations seated in Australia and/or related to Australian transactions and projects, as highlighted by the cases considered in this review.
