The article presents information on a case fought by White & Case LLP that could redefine the powers of arbitrators. The case, Lesotho Highlands Development Authority v Impregilo & ors, was heard in the Lords in May. The decision will define the boundaries of arbitrators' powers under the 1996 Arbitration Act. The Lesotho Highlands Development Authority hired Impregilo and six other companies, collectively known as the Highlands Water Venture (HWV), to build a dam in the southern African state of Lesotho. Following the dam's construction, HWV claimed additional labour costs and was partially successful at the International Chamber of Commerce arbitration.
