The impact of the forthcoming referendum on fundraising has been significant and protracted, with the fund IPO market struggling to woo investors who are uncertain of what the future may bring should Vote Leave prevail.

The Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements might achieve for litigation what the New York Convention managed for arbitration. It should be taken into account in any strategic planning around disputes and dispute resolution, although it has not had time to build up a hinterland of case law and academic publishing.
Where a non-signatory is involved in performing a contract it may be bound by the arbitration agreement. ‘Good faith’ will play a role, as case law concerning the ‘group of companies’ doctrine reveals. The solution is to be absolutely clear in your arbitration agreement as to whether you wish it to extend to non-signatories involved in a project.
In Australia, any attempt to derail the arbitration process by involving the courts will be looked upon unfavourably. If you are unhappy with the process, go to the tribunal, wait for them to decide on the issues you raise, and do not seek court intervention prematurely. This point was underlined in 2015 when the Federal Court of Australia dismissed a challenge to the appointment of two arbitrators in the Sino Dragon v Noble Resources dispute.
