London Associate Claire Morel de Westgaver was quoted June 10 by Global Arbitration Review regarding a decision in Getma International v. The Republic of Guinea. Morel de Westgaver commented on the recent refusal of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to confirm and enforce a €38 million arbitration award against Guinea that was controversially set aside by the Common Court of Justice and Arbitration of OHADA after the arbitrators agreed to a fee rise with the parties. “Essentially, the judgment is about whether to deny exequatur of an award that has been set aside at the seat and is in line with U.S. case law on this issue,” she said. Morel de Westgaver previously co-authored a paper on the Getma case with Emilie Gonin. The paper was published in Young Arbitration Review.
