Herbert Smith Freehills has issued the latest edition of its Indian international arbitration e-bulletin.
In this issue, we consider Indian court decisions, including the rejection of forum non conveniens arguments by the Delhi High Court allowing restaurant chain McDonalds to pursue an arbitration in London and various decisions in which the Indian courts show restraint in relation to interfering with offshore arbitrations. In other news, we consider India’s position in seeking to re-negotiate its Bilateral Investment Treaties with 47 countries. Further, we discuss the recently launched Mumbai Centre for International Arbitration to which HSF partner Nick Peacock has been appointed to the Council.
For further information, please contact Nicholas Peacock, Head of India Arbitration Practice, Alastair Henderson, Managing Partner-SE Asia, Donny Surtani, Senior Associate, Kritika Venugopal, Associate or your usual Herbert Smith Freehills contact.
