Investment Arbitration: Challenge to Arbitrator for Alleged State Bias Fails

Thu, 09 March, 2017

Guy Blackwood QC and Siddharth Dhar (of Essex Court Chambers), instructed by Costas Frangeskides and Adam Strong of Holman Fenwick Willan LLP, act on behalf of the Respondent state, the Hellenic Republic (the “Republic”) in ICSID arbitration reference 16/20 (the “Greek Submarines” dispute).

As is reported in the lead article of Global Arbitration Review for 8th March 2017, the claimants’ attempt to unseat Professor Brigitte Stern, the Republic’s appointee to the Tribunal, was successfully defeated by the Republic’s team.
