As you may recall, an arbitral tribunal chaired by Matthieu de Boisséson with arbitrators Thomas Clay and Alexis Moore issued a jurisdictional award on October 13, 2015, which was appealed to the Federal Tribunal on the ground that the conciliation proceedings under the ICC ADR Rules – applicable pursuant to the contract between a BVI company and an Algerian state entity – had not been complied with. The award was annulled and the arbitration stayed until the end of the ADR procedure.
