Didi Melchior & Hadas Peled Publish on Kluwer Arbitration Blog
The Kluwer Arbitration Blog published a short article written by LMA attorneys Yedidya (Didi) Melchior and Hadas Peled titled “Israeli Arbitration Law in Knots? Foreign Service of Process for ‘Made in Israel’ Awards”.
The article discusses a recent Israeli Supreme Court ruling that causes significant problems in the enforcement in Israel of commercial international arbitration awards given by an Israeli arbitration panel. The Supreme Court held that that Israeli courts should generally not exercise “long arm” jurisdiction on a foreign party just because the arbitration was seated in Israel.
