Anti-suit injunctions: third parties

In Shipowners’ Mutual Protection and Indemnity Association (Luxembourg) v Containerships Denizcilik Nakliyat ve Ticaret AS (The Yusuf Cepnioglu) [2016] EWCA Civ 386, the Court of Appeal has upheld the first instance decision of Teare J, [2015] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 567, holding that an anti-suit injunction is in principle awardable against a third party who brings a claim in reliance on a contract containing an arbitration clause.

The point most commonly arises in the context of liability insurance provided to shipowners by P&I Clubs.
