What Constitutes A Valid Arbitration Agreement

His honour, Hammer J, noted that the dispute settlement clause did not provide for a binding conciliation agreement, since there was no critical provision in the agreement for one of the parties to refer the dispute to arbitration or litigation, much less to indicate that arbitration was a priority. [3] Moreover, the clause in question did not contain words of choice, and certainly none conferred on one party the right to force the other to go in one direction. He considered that there could be arbitrations or litigation, but the embargoes both until after mediation. [4] II. The arbitration agreement recommended in the event that the legal relationship with which it is concluded is not contractual in nature: arbitration in India is subject to the provisions of the Arbitration – Conciliation Act 1996 (hereafter the law). The law provides that an arbitration agreement may be concluded with respect to or any dispute that has arisen or is likely to be related to a defined legal relationship, whether contractual or not. The law also provides that an arbitration agreement may be in the nature of a compromise clause in a contract or a separate agreement between those parties.

For Mr. Aikens, the question was whether the notice should be set aside in order for the validity of the award to be determined by the English court or whether it was appropriate to leave to the arbitrator`s court an outstanding issue that could be raised in the context of an enforcement proceeding abroad. Whether you choose institutional or ad hoc arbitration always depends on what the parties agree on directly or indirectly. In international arbitration, the supporting judge, unless the parties agree otherwise, is the president of the Civil Court of Paris, the Paris High Court. In our previous article, we looked at the issue of “fragmentation” and its impact on an application to stay proceedings until arbitration. In this article, we will examine the broader considerations that apply to motions regarding the lack of arbitration proceedings, and we will focus on the requirement of a valid arbitration agreement.
