Thomas Sebastian – Lloyd’s Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly – Arbitration and the act of state doctrine

22 Sep 2020 By Thomas Sebastian

Tom Sebastian has published a note in Lloyd’s Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly on the Commercial Court’s judgment in Reliance Industries Limited v The Union of India [2018] EWHC 822 (Comm). In that case the Commercial Court ruled that the doctrine of act of state applies in London-seated arbitrations. Tom argues that the Court reached the wrong result.
