SCC Arbitration Institute and SACC Event in Perth 11 October – Navigating the Midnight Clause and Dispute Management

On 11 October the SCC Arbitration Institute and the Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce in Perth held an event generously hosted by King & Wood Mallesons discussing alternative dispute resolution and the so-called “Midnight clause”.

The speakers offered the audience tips and tricks on how to avoid the pitfalls when drafting an arbitration clause, including to copy and paste the model clauses provided by the arbitration institutions, and to be sure to carefully select the “seat”, or the “legal home” of the arbitration.

Special thanks to Amanda Lees partner at King & Wood Mallesons based in Singapore, and Jake Lowther, legal counsel at SCC Arbitration Institute based in Stockholm for joining us. Thanks also to moderator Pia Nilsson, SACC Perth WA and Joseph Olsson, Sandvik/SACC Perth WA, for the welcoming remarks.
