Arbitration analysis: Mr Justice Teare, in the Commercial Court, confirmed that a London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) arbitral tribunal had substantive jurisdiction to determine a dispute referred to it, following an application by the claimant (with the tribunal’s permission) to the court to decide this issue pursuant to section 32 of the Arbitration Act 1996 (AA 1996).
