- Parties to the dispute (and jurisdiction) — Arbitral agreements — Failure to appear by a party — Third party participation
This chapter features court cases showing the various legal obligations and obstacles undergone by the parties to an arbitration agreement, as well as other participating actors, such as exclusions, delegations, successions, and so forth. Some cases involve attempts to bring in other entities, who are not parties to the arbitration, for different reasons. Another section looks at the roles played by agents and non-parties acting on behalf of parties in arbitration disputes. The chapter also reviews the cases that have considered when a corporate entity can be disregarded. Finally, the chapter looks at whether the effect of an arbitral award extends to a successor party, which, like most of the cases covered in this chapter, remains a contentious issue.
