    Arbitration Quarterly

    As we enter the last quarter of 2022, changes and developments continue to occur in the world of international arbitration. On one hand, jurisprudence on the different aspects of international arbitration is expanding with the decisions of arbitral tribunals and courts. On the other hand, remarkable developments are occurring with regards to investment arbitration especially due to the monumental changes regarding the protection of energy investments.

    New Decision by the Court of Cassation General Assembly to Unify the Conflicting Judgments

    There were conflicting opinions among various chambers of the Court of Cassation as to whether the statement of claim for the actions for the annulment of objections to the execution proceedings should be served to the attorney or the debtor. This conclusion reached in the Decision of the Board of the Unification of Case Law resolved the contradictions. Accordingly, even if the debtor against whom an execution proceeding is initiated objects to the execution proceeding through their attorney, in the action for annulment of the objection to be filed by the creditor, the statement of claim must be served to the principal (the debtor).
