Appointment of an Arbitrator in Arbitral Proceedings

The ratio of law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Union of India Vs. Pradeep Vinod Construction Company (2020) 2 SCC 464, wherein it is held that when the agreement specifically provides for appointment of a named Arbitrator, the appointment should be done in terms of the Agreement unless there are exceptional reasons.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court in Perkins Eastman Architects DPC & Anr. vs. HSCC (India) Ltd. 2019 SCC Online SC 1517 has has categorically stated that “in cases where one party has a right to appoint a sole arbitrator, its choice will always have an element of exclusivity in determining or charting the course for dispute resolution. Naturally, the person who has an interest in the outcome or decision of the dispute must not have the power to appoint a sole arbitrator.”
