Singapore’s prominence in the international arbitration scene continues to rise in 2018. While Singapore arbitration landscape remained relatively stable in 2018 – with no new rules or procedures being introduced – the number of reported court decisions arising from or relating to arbitration have increased, reflecting the buzz in this space.
In the past year, the Singapore Courts have had the occasion to revisit established principles and navigate new territory in the law relating to and governing arbitrations. These include 4 applications to set aside arbitral awards; 2 applications to review the arbitral tribunal’s jurisdiction; and the usual stream of stay applications.
Chaired by Mr Francis Goh of Eversheds Harry Elias LLP, Professor Lawrence Boo and Ms Christine Artero shared their views and observations on the judicial decisions made by the courts in 2018, and their implications on the treatment of related matters going forward. The talk on Developments in Singapore Arbitration on 12 February 2019 was insightful and very well received.
