What Price Accuracy? A Recent House of Lords Decision May Be a Recipe for Delay in UK Contract Law Arbitrations

July 23, 2007

The English House of Lords has issued two landmark decisions within the past six months addressing the value-date for the quantification of damages. The most recent of these decisions, in Golden Strait Corporation v Nippon Yusen Kubishika Kaisha, involves commercial contract law and may be a recipe for delay in UK contract law arbitrations. The attached article addresses the impact and application of these recent decisions.

Gibson Dunn partner Cy Benson and associate Nathalie Allen are the authors of “What Price Accuracy?” which was featured in a recent issue of Global Arbitration Review.
