Quadrant Chambers International Arbitration Panel Debate: Halliburton v Chubb


The Supreme Court handed down judgment in the long awaited decision in the case of Halliburton Company (Appellant) v Chubb Bermuda Insurance Ltd (Formerly known as Ace Bermuda Insurance Ltd) (Respondent). The Supreme Court has unanimously dismissed Halliburton’s appeal finding that the circumstances of the arbitrator’s appointment did not give rise to justifiable doubts as to his impartiality.

Quadrant Chambers hosted a special webinar to discuss the judgment and its implications. Our panel moderated by Gaurav Sharma, includes Simon Rainey KC, Constantine Partasides KC of Three Crowns (who led the ICC Court’s submissions before the Supreme Court), Philippa Charles, Head of International Arbitration at Stewarts, and full time Arbitrator Clare Ambrose.
