Message from Mr Justice Mostyn: update on standard orders

On 9 July 2021 I handed down judgment in A v A (Arbitration: Guidance) [2021] EWHC 1889 (Fam), in which, with the President of the Family Division’s agreement and approval, I promulgated guidance concerning the procedure for challenging/implementing an arbitral award. I appended a pro forma initial gatekeeper’s order to that guidance and indicated that it would be added to the compendium of standard orders.

That order (Order 6.5 – Arbitration: Initial Gatekeeper’s Order) is attached below and takes effect immediately.
