Sygna's Newsletter on International Arbitration - 1st Semester 2021

Paris has, historically, been considered attractive as an arbitral seat notably because of France’s arbitration-friendly legal regime. Sygna Partners’ biannual newsletter aims at keeping track of the evolution of France’s arbitration legislation by presenting French Court of Appeal and Court of Cassation’s decisions and reasonings in some of the interesting cases these judicial bodies rendered in the field of international arbitration.


For this edition, prepared with the assistance of Lefa Mondon and Noémie Patarozzi, Sygna’s International litigation and arbitration department focused on the analysis of five judgements, rendered in the first semester of 2021, as they clarify the extent to which an award may be annulled due to the arbitral tribunal’s jurisdiction, but they also establish the limits of what is upheld as French international public policy by the French courts.


The International litigation and arbitration department of Sygna Partners, headed by Professor Jean-Marc Thouvenin and Luke Vidal, has a specific activity of international jurisconsult and international counsel to States, administration and companies in the field of public, economic and commercial international law.
