This book deals with the English law of arbitration as at June 30, 2007, although wherever possible an attempt has been made to incorporate subsequent developments up to the date of finalising the proofs for publication in early October 2007. For example, reference has been included to the potentially important first instance decisions in Albon v Naza Motor Trading Sdn Bhd (No.4), where the court exceptionally granted an injunction to restrain a foreign arbitration, and to Tamil Nadu Electricity Board v ST-CMS Electric Co Private Ltd, which deals with the interplay between the law of the matrix contract and the law of the agreement to arbitrate. Both of these cases were decided in July 2007.
Even more recently, m the final days of reviewing the proofs of the book, the House of Lords handed down the important decision in Premium Nafta Products Ltd v FUi Shipping Co Ltd. We had given extensive treatment to the decision of the Court of Appeal in this case (there entitled Fiona Trust & Holding Corp v Yuri Privalov). The House of Lords decision further bolsters the principle of separability of the agreement to arbitrate contained in section 7 of the Act and lays down sensible and modern guidance on the construction of the wording of agreements to arbitrate and we have therefore sought to incorporate reference to it in so far as possible in the time available.
More than ever, the development of arbitration law is moving at a fast pace and the temptation, which we have resisted, was to postpone publication of this 23rd edition until certain important developments had crystallised, not least because in the five years since the 22nd edition almost every area of arbitration law has received judicial attention and time is now ripe for a fresh statement of the law. One evolving issue worthy of particular note is the continued ability of the courts to grant anti-suit injunctions to restrain proceedings brought in other Brussels Convention countries commenced in breach of an agreement to arbitrate is in doubt following the reference of this question to the European Court of Justice by the House of Lords in West Tankers Inc v Ras Riuione Adriatica di Sicurata. The ECJ is not expected to consider the reference until 2009 at the earliest. In Chapter 7, we summarise the current position pending this decision and the arguments for and against the use of anti-suit injunctions.
Finally, we should thank our colleagues at Alien & Overy LLP and elsewhere who have given us great assistance in the process of preparing this addition, in particular, Hannah Ambrose, Chris Mainwaring-Taylor and Conan Lauterpacht, colleagues in the arbitration group at Alien & Overy. We also wish to express our thanks for the tireless secretarial support provided by Maria lannella, and for the invaluable support and guidance given by our publishers at Sweet & Maxwell.
