English court supports enforcement of arbitral award, granting worldwide injunction requiring disclosure of assets


This morning, Mr Justice Field handed down his decision in the case of Cruz City 1 Mauritius Holdings v Unitech Limited and others [2013] EWHC 1323 (Comm), confirming the jurisdiction of the English courts to order a free-standing, worldwide disclosure injunction under section 37(1) of the Senior Courts Act 1981, to aid enforcement of an arbitration award against a recalcitrant defendant.

Helpfully, the High Court also ruled that service of an application made as an arbitration claim will “invariably” be permitted on a party’s English solicitors who acted in the arbitration if: (i) it would be quicker than other means; and (ii) the solicitors do not appear to have been disinstructed.
