At the 12th arbitration, the panel gave to me: 12 investors investing, 11 funders funding, 10 pledgers pledging, nine arbitration clauses, eight arbitral seats, seven Yukos awards, six revised rule sets, five BITs, four NAFTA fall-outs, three arbitrators, two Brexit parties, and the Achmea controversy.*
As 2018 draws to a close, so the Practical Law Arbitration blog must hibernate over the Christmas break. We will be back rejuvenated in early January to kick-start what will undoubtedly be another bumper year.
Until that auspicious occasion, if Morecambe and Wise don’t tickle your fancy, why not kick back with some light reading material? Namely, our review of the ten most significant arbitration-related decisions from the English courts in 2018.
So, as we bid farewell to another year, all that remains is to thank our contributors for their excellent posts over the past 12 months. That and, of course, to wish all of them, and you, a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019.
