About this book:

Arbitration Law of Pakistan, authored by Pakistan’s leading arbitrator, practitioner, and legal scholar, is a pioneering book that furnishes in-depth coverage of all significant topics of Pakistani law on both domestic and foreign arbitration, ranging from the drafting of the arbitration agreement to the enforcement of arbitral awards. Driven to a significant extent by Pakistan’s rapidly growing status in trade and economic partnerships, particularly considering the country’s role in the China and Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), interest in Pakistan’s dispute settlement regime is on the rise. 

What’s in this book:

Delving deep into the Pakistani statutes and case law affecting arbitration and bilateral investment treaties (BITs), the author elucidates the following issues and topics:

  • concepts of separability, arbitrability, and competence-competence;
  • rules governing the conclusion, interpretation, and enforcement of arbitration agreements;
  • grounds on which courts assume jurisdiction;
  • legal issues concerning the stay of court proceedings in both domestic and foreign arbitration;
  • constitution of arbitral tribunals;
  • interim measures;
  • judicial review of both domestic and foreign arbitral awards; and
  • available remedies of appeal and revision.

How this will help you:

Deemed to become the most prominent authority on the arbitration law of Pakistan, this first-of-its-kind book will prove to be immensely valuable to Pakistani practitioners, arbitrators, judges, students, and academics as the first pragmatic guide to arbitration practice and procedure in their country.  It will also be appreciated by foreign practitioners approaching Pakistani courts seeking interim measures and enforcement of arbitration agreements and arbitral awards. Additionally, both domestic and foreign businesspeople will discover clear paths to well-informed decisions on investment and commercial issues involving Pakistan.
