ABSTRACT
The article reports that the law firm Slaughter & May in Great Britain has won a House of Lords decision confirming the powers of arbitrators using English law. Partner Nick Gray was acting for the Highlands Water Venture (HWV) consortium, which had been contracted to build a dam in the southern African state of Lesotho. HWV claimed additional labour costs from the Lesotho Highlands Development Agency after the dam's construction, and the case went to arbitration at the International Chamber of Commerce. HWV was partially successful, and the arbitrators ordered the award to be paid in sterling and euros.
