“Challenging an Arbitrator for Lack of Required Qualification – Revisited," International Arbitration Law Review

Partner John H. Mathias, Jr. and Associate Thomas Wingfield return to the issue of arbitrator qualifications in the new International Arbitration Law Review.  They comment on the English Court of Appeal’s decision in Allianz Insurance v Tonicstar that experience of insurance law does qualify as experience of insurance — reversing an earlier Commercial Court decision – and consider the judgment’s implications for wider questions of precedent and interpretation.
