An Introduction to Pleadings in International Arbitration: Practice and Procedure

One of the first tasks of a Tribunal, seized of jurisdiction, is to determine the form of pleadings in the arbitration. Most arbitration laws do not make express provision for rules of evidence. Institutional rules usually leave it to the arbitral tribunal to determine matters of evidence and procedure. It is usual therefore, in most cases, for one of the first directions of the Tribunal to be an order for comprehensive written pleadings.

In recent years, a number of high profile accounting frauds have hit the headlines and English courtrooms, from Patisserie Valerie to Carillion to NMC Health plc.  The fallout from these scandals has embroiled not only the companies and their creditors, but also their directors, business partners, auditors and bankers.  In our current tough economic environment, many businesses will be under stress.  To stay afloat, unscrupulous managers may be tempted to manipulate financial accounts to placate shareholders, lure in new investments, or avoid breaching lending covenants.  Meanwhile, as businesses begin to fail, history suggests that more cases of accounting fraud will be exposed.

Arbitration Clauses: Purpose, Type, Scope and Clarity

The parties’ agreement to arbitrate is the very foundation of Arbitration, and it is most often found in contractual clauses. Effective drafting, and knowledge of the purposes and effects of the various components in such a clause are essential. Contractual disputes subject to the clause will arise after the drafting, when it is too late to make any material changes to the clause. Not infrequently, badly drafted clauses are the subject of time-consuming and expensive litigation, and even if such a clause survives, there may be later problems at the enforcement stage.

Any claim against the contracting party will frequently be subject to an arbitration clause, but the other potential defendants will not be subject to that clause.
