Imagine you have been appointed as sole arbitrator in the Mototête SA v Visorworld Pty Ltd case and that the seat of the arbitration is London. The parties have not explicitly agreed to apply any of the sets of rules on arbitration published by the International Bar Association (IBA).
Consider each of the following scenarios, and indicate (in no more than 1000 words in total) any steps you would take (or reasons for taking no steps) to address the matter (please consider each separately and not cumulatively), bearing in mind that for financial and career reasons you do not wish to lose the appointment:
(a) You own 2% of the shareholding of a company which was, until three years ago, a major supplier to the Claimant.
(b) You are a keen motorcyclist.
(c) Three years prior to being contacted in connection with the case, you were treated at the same hospital in Istanbul at which the operation was carried out on Aiden O’Reilley. Your treatment was for a broken leg sustained during a fall while on holiday in the city.
(d) Six months ago, you were included in a list of possible arbitrators by the Respondent in a claim in which it was pursuing a building company for alleged shoddy building works at its Australian headquarters. Ultimately you were not selected.
As part of your answer, you should identify any further information you might need to be able to form a proper view on each issue.
