Arbitration Clauses and Third Parties compares different branches of law, namely shipping, reinsurance, and construction, where the legal notion of incorporation is often implemented. It evaluates how the differences and peculiarities of the said branches of law impact the outcome of the incorporation of arbitration clauses and therefore why a ‘one size fits all’ approach should be avoided. The book provides both an in-depth legal analysis of the incorporation of arbitration clauses as well as the legal position of the third parties regarding arbitration agreements and a detailed evaluation of the relevant case law. It further offers a unique comparative analysis of English law and Singapore law with regards to the incorporation of arbitration clauses and features recent case law on the issue from both jurisdictions. Moreover, the book explores the status of third parties to arbitration and a wide range of legal situations in which arbitration clauses bind third parties.
Service Issue 94 contains a new section analysing the Singapore Convention on Mediation 2019 (see para. 6.31). The Law Commission’s Second Consultation Paper on the Arbitration Act 1996 published in March 2023, reviewing the rules for determining the law applicable to an arbitration clause and for appeals against awards on jurisdictional grounds, is also considered.
