In this October edition of Arbitration insights from Singapore, Singapore-based international arbitration partner Chris Bailey and the global international arbitration team examine recent developments in global enforcement and asset tracing.

Lead article: 2022 arbitration case law from the Singapore courts

In this October edition of Arbitration insights from Singapore, Chris Bailey – alongside Singapore-based partner Daryll Ng and managing associate Rebecca Crookenden – examine Singapore's increasing status as one of the leading global hubs for international dispute resolution.

Any Singapore developments will inevitably influence developments elsewhere around the world. With an increasing number of arbitration cases seated in Singapore, and also a rising number of applications to enforce foreign arbitration awards in Singapore, the decisions of the Singapore courts will form a key source of jurisprudence in the development of international arbitration law.

With this in mind, the team reviewed four Singapore court judgments on arbitral matters from across 2022: a case from this month on the enforcement of foreign emergency interim awards in Singapore, a case from June on the finality of an arbitration award, and two cases from March on non-existence arbitral institutions and the importance of pleadings respectively.

Enforcement publication and market recognition: The Legal 500's enforcement guide – English, Singapore and UAE chapters

Closely linked to developments in global arbitration is enforcement. There is an increasing need for skilled practitioners to enforce both arbitration award and courts judgment in complex coordinated multi-jurisdictional strategies to realise the successful claimant's recovery.

Stephenson Harwood has contributed the English, Singapore and UAE chapters to The Legal 500's latest guide on Enforcement in Civil and Commercial Matters. Partners Donna Newman in London, Nicholas Sharratt in Dubai and our very own Daryll Ng in Singapore led the initiative.
