Nomination to I-ARB AFRICA’S top 100 list


Jeremy Gauntlett SC has been nominated for appointment to the Africa 100 List of African arbitrators.

International Arbitration Africa is the outcome of a Seychelles-registered initiative, of which the prime movers were the Hon Mr Justice Edward Torgbor, a retired Kenyan judge, and fellow African arbitrator Ms Legan Tamera of Ethiopia.  I-ARB AFRICA has an important likely role given the cancellation by a number of African countries of their bilateral investment treaties. South Africa alone has cancelled 23 of its 41 BITS in the past year. Members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in particular have developed a new model of BIT intended to achieve African-based dispute resolution.

New arbitration centres have been set up in Rwanda, Mauritius and Nigeria, with others expected shortly.  The Nairobi International Arbitration Centre is expected to start receiving its first cases shortly, while the International Chamber of Commerce has announced the launch of a centre in Ghana.
