Arbitration For The Uninitiated – Is it Right For You And Your Clients?

Webinar Archive 9th June 2021

Imogen Robins supports arbitration wholeheartedly. She has acted for clients in financial arbitration. This talk will look at recent developments in case law, in particular, Haley v Haley [2020] EWCA Civ 1369, [2021] 2WLR 357. It is intended to demystify the process and give those new to this area a toolkit, to ensure they are confident when they consider this alternative route. Imogen is in the process of qualifying as an arbitrator and hopes to bring the perspective of both counsel and arbitrator to the discussion.



Topics include:

  • A brief introduction to the ethos behind the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators Financial Scheme – IFLA(FS)
  • The key sections of the Arbitration Act 1996
  • Appointing the arbitrator
  • The arbitration hearing
  • Applying to the court for an order in the terms of the arbitral award
  • Haley v Haley [2020] EWCA Civ 1369, [2021] 2WLR 357

The talk is followed by a short question & answer session.
