A time-barred arbitral award is a bird without wings: CL v SCG [2019]

The briefing discusses the decision in CL v SCG [2019]

The decision in CL v SCG highlights the importance of timely enforcement of an arbitral award. The clock starts ticking when the defendant fails to honour the award within a reasonable time.
