In the recent case of CAI v CAJ [2021] SGHC 21, the Singapore High Court took the rare step of setting aside part of an ICC arbitral award on the grounds that there had been a breach of natural justice, and that the Tribunal had exceeded its jurisdiction.

Cavinder Bull, SC, Director Lin Shumin and Associate Amadeus Huang acted for the successful plaintiff in the hearing before the General Division of the Singapore High Court.
