Qingdao Huiquan Shipping Co v Shanghai Dong He Xin Industry Group Co Ltd

Injunction – Anti-suit injunction. The claimant shipping company successfully applied for an injunction to prevent the defendant from continuing with proceedings in the Chinese court against it, in a shipping dispute, where an earlier settlement agreement had specified that any further proceedings were to take place in the UK. The Commercial Court held that the present case was an appropriate one for an interim injunction to be granted. There were no strong reasons not to allow the application, including the effects of delay on the proceedings.
