High Court refuses to intervene on emergency relief
Gerald Metals SA v Timis and Others  EWHC 2327 (Ch), 22 September 2016
The claimant’s application arose from an arbitration in the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), in which the
claimant sought payment under a guarantee of sums due to the claimant from the trust owning the defendant’s debtor company.
The claimant applied to LCIA for the appointment of an emergency arbitrator in order to prevent the trustee from disposing
of the trust’s assets, but the application was rejected.
