LIDW Member Hosted Event: Are arbitrators getting away with too much?

As part of London International Disputes Week 2021, Pinsent Masons is pleased to co-host a webinar with Lexis Nexis and leading practitioners to consider issues around the challenges and appeals against arbitral awards under the (English) Arbitration Act 1996, along with some comparative analysis.

In particular, speakers are expected to debate the following issues:

  • Finality and party autonomy are held sacred by some members of the arbitration community. But should they be?
  • Is lax court oversight letting bad arbitrators get away with too much? Is it time for a fundamental rethink?
