Arbitration Agreement Applicable Law

December 3, 2020

Some arbitration rules contain a standard provision that establishes a right applicable to the arbitration agreement. Thus, section 16.4 of the rules of the LCIA provides that, unless the parties agree otherwise, the law applicable to the arbitration agreement is identical to that of the head office. The English courts apply a three-step test for the determination of the law relating to a compromise clause formulated by the Court of Appeal in Sulamerica CIA Nacional de Seguros SA et al. against Enesa Engenharia SA et al [2012] EWCA Civ 638. The policies contained a clause of Brazilian law and a compromise clause with a seat in London. The explicit choice of the material contract is a strong indication of the parties` intent with respect to the arbitration agreement, unless there are other factors indicating a different conclusion. This may include the terms of the arbitration agreement itself or the consequences on its effectiveness in choosing the appropriate right of the material contract. While there were powerful factors in the implicit choice of Brazilian law as the law of the arbitration agreement, two important factors attracted attention in the other direction. – The question of whether a party was properly represented when the arbitration contract was concluded, which is governed by state law in which the agent did not necessarily enter into the arbitration agreement.

As a general rule, the conciliation agreement is concluded in the form of a clause as part of a broader contract. The arbitration agreement is a stand-alone contract that can be separated from the material contract in which it is located. This reflects the parties` presumed intention to maintain their agreed dispute resolution procedure, even if the material contract is found to be ineffective. The teaching of dissociability means that an arbitration agreement is governed by a right other than that of the existing material contract. To avoid uncertainty, it is best to specify the law of the arbitration agreement. Check the compromise clause and add an explicit choice to the current legislation by adding the following text. “The law applicable to this arbitration clause is [insert the law of choice].” An explicit choice of law cannot be superseded by the choice of another legal law (determined by the seat of arbitration – here Paris). “Any dispute, controversy or claim that may arise from this contract (contract) [in the event of a separate arbitration agreement, indicate a particular contract (agreement) ] or entry into force, conclusion, amendment, amendment, violation, termination, termination or validity of these contracts are settled by arbitration with the International Commercial Arbitration Tribunal of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in accordance with the rules and rules. In international arbitrations, it is not uncommon for laws to apply to more than one state. They rarely need standard arbitration agreements for the law applicable to the arbitration agreement. But problems can arise if it is not dealt with in the agreement – it is a good practice.

But if the parties have not chosen the laws to regulate their affairs, how will the courts decide which laws apply? Rome I contains a code to determine the existing legislation of a contract, which does not expressly apply to arbitration agreements. So, in the absence of an election, how should a court decide which country governs arbitration law? 14 As will be explained later, the English courts apply the common law to determine the law applicable to the arbitration agreement, outside of section V (1) a) of the New York Convention, which takes effect in English law by Section 103.2 (b) of the Arbitration Act 1996. However, some national courts apply the rules of conflict of laws under Article V (1)a) of the convention, even in the transposition phase: cf. z.B.
