No. of Public CPD Points: 1.0
Practice Area: Alternative Dispute Resolution
Training Level: General

 

About the Programme

Often, the dispute resolution clause in agreements is the clause least reviewed in a heavily negotiated transaction. Pre-existing clauses from previous agreements are copied without consideration for suitability. When issues arise, a poorly drafted arbitration agreement will only exacerbate the problems between the parties, and may be the cause of years of proceedings, wasted costs and an award that is unenforceable.

In the first of two webinars, our speakers will critique and comment on several sample arbitration provisions to illustrate the basic principles of drafting an arbitration clause and key issues to consider including:

  • the seat of the arbitration
  • the scope of the arbitration clause
  • the law governing the arbitration agreement
  • mechanism for appointment of arbitrators
  • choice of institutional or ad hoc arbitration

The second webinar, to be held on 1 October 2020, will cover issues such as arbitrability and multi-tiered dispute resolution clauses.

Both webinars are suitable for practitioners who wish to understand the rationale for certain wording and ensure that the arbitration provisions they craft are suitable for their clients' needs. The first session will comprise a discussion amongst Ms Asya Jamaludin, Mr Herman Jeremiah and Mr Gerald Kuppusamy, moderated by Ms Lijun Chui.

Speakers

  • Lijun Chui – Member, Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, The Law Society of Singapore; Arbitration Practitioner
  • Asya Jamaludin – Co-Vice Chairperson, Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, The Law Society of Singapore; Counsel, CMS Holborn Asia
  • Herman Jeremiah – Senior Partner, Dentons Rodyk & Davidson LLP
  • Gerald Kuppusamy - Senior Legal Counsel, Standard Chartered Bank
