In this article, David McIlwaine, partner, and Stuart Davey, associate, at Pinsent Masons LLP, consider the growing appetite for international arbitration in the technology sector and discuss the decision of the High Court in Secretary of State for the Home Department v Raytheon (the e-Borders case), in which the firm acted for the successful claimant.
