Sociedade de Fomento Industrial Private Limited - arbitration

11 Jul 2011

Slaughter and May acted for Sociedade de Fomento Industrial Private Limited (SFI), a major exporter of iron ore, in an ICC arbitration in London. The dispute arose with the counterparty to a long-term supply agreement, Pakistan Steel Mills Corporation (Pvt) Ltd, a Pakistan state-owned steel mill, and was governed by English law. An award was received in our client's favour. Slaughter and May also advised SFI on the enforcement of that award in Canada. The arbitration raised challenging economic and political issues, especially in relation to jurisdiction and enforcement.
