London Arbitration 1/15

CLERICAL ERROR -- DOCUMENTS WRONGLY IDENTIFIED IN NOTICE OF APPOINTMENT -- LIMITED JURISDICTION -- TIME BAR -- Respondent Award This dispute arose as a result of a clerical error made by the consignee’s lawyers. When appointing an arbitrator, they used incorrect references to the same bill of lading contracts on various correspondences / documents. This variation inadvertently made the correspondences / documents apply to a non-existing contract, and subsequently, the Respondent argued that the corresponding claims should be time barred.
