Court of Appeal upholds setting aside of ICC arbitration award for breach of natural justice and excess of jurisdiction

16 Nov 2021

In the recent case of CAJ & CAK v CAI [2021] SGCA 102, the Singapore Court of Appeal observed that approximately only 20% of applications to set aside arbitral awards have been allowed. Nevertheless, the Court of Appeal was persuaded that this was a “classic case of a breach of natural justice”, and that the Tribunal had exceeded its jurisdiction. In doing so, the Court of Appeal made a number of salient pronouncements on the setting-aside of an award under these two grounds.

Our Chief Executive Officer Cavinder Bull, SC, Director Lin Shumin and Associate Amadeus Huang acted for the successful respondent in the hearings before the Singapore Court of Appeal and the General Division of the Singapore High Court.
