The recent High Court case of Tumatatoro v HJS AG examines the requirements for an agreement to arbitrate, and the AMINZ appointment process.
Musings of a busy mind
It's 5 years since Sir David Williams QC, Deborah Hart and I sat down to dinner with then Attorney-General, Hon Christopher Finlayson QC, to discuss the benefits of promoting New Zealand as a destination for international arbitration, and the amendments we would like to the Arbitration Act 1996.
Finally, this evening, the Bill has been passed into law - with some amendment, it has to be said, but passed into law it has. Nice to be credited in Andrew Bayly MP's opening comments. It's not every day you get noted in Hansard!
