John Machell KC analyses the keenly anticipated Privy Council decision in FamilyMart China Holding Co Ltd v Ting Chuan (Cayman Islands) Holding Corporation [2023] UKPC 33 on the extent to which effect should be given to an arbitration agreement in a shareholders’ agreement in the face of a petition for just and equitable winding up.

Wilson Leung comments on the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal’s recent decision in C v D [2023] HKCFA 16 that stepped arbitration clauses go to admissibility rather than jurisdiction.

Ramyaa Veerabathran considers the decision of the English court to refuse to enforce a Californian arbitration award in favour of a crypto-asset exchance on public policy grounds, Payward Inc and Ors v Chechetkin [2023] EWHC 1780 (Comm).
