Non-signatories Before and After Arbitration: Compelling Arbitration ~ Enforcing Awards

November 18, 2020



Cleary Gottlieb partner Richard Kreindler is participating in, “Non-signatories Before and After Arbitration: Compelling Arbitration ~ Enforcing Awards,” hosted by Chartered Institute of Arbitrators New York Branch and New York International Arbitration Center.

The panelists will address issues such as:

  • Choice of law and legal doctrines that may be deployed in the United States and elsewhere to permit or compel non-signatories to arbitrate.
  • The allocation of responsibility among arbitral institutions, arbitral tribunals, and courts in deciding who are proper parties to an arbitration.
  • Matters left unresolved by the U.S. Supreme Court in GE Energy Power Conversion France SAS, Corp. v. Outokumpu Stainless USA, LLC, 140 S. Ct. 1637 (2020), a case involving a non-signatory seeking to join a signatory based on the doctrine of equitable estoppel.
  • Recent developments on these and related issues in jurisdictions outside the United States.
  • Enforcement of arbitral awards against parties not named in the arbitration, an issue raised in CBF Indústria de Gusa S/A v. AMCI Holdings, Inc., 850 F.3d 58 (2d Cir. 2017).
