W Ltd v M SDN BHD

Arbitration – Award. The Commercial Court dismissed the claimant's appeal against awards made in an arbitration for apparent bias based on alleged conflict of interest on the part of the arbitrator. On the evidence, and on the application of the 2014 International Bar Association Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration, the fair minded and informed observer would not have concluded that there had been a real possibility that the tribunal had been biased, or had lacked independence or impartiality.
