About the Seminar:
Whilst contractual claims are the bread and butter of commercial arbitration, arbitrators are also faced with non-contractual causes of action, for example in tort or delict, unjust enrichment/restitution, or in equity, which present different issues and challenges. This seminar will examine the particular issues that arise in pleading and determining non-contractual claims in commercial arbitration, including:
• Typical types of non-contractual claim in commercial arbitration;
• Jurisdiction over non-contractual claims;
• Governing law for non-contractual claims;
• Tactics, pitfalls and difficult issues arising in relation to non-contractual claims.
Join us for free flow of wines, beers, soft drinks and food after the seminar!
