Legal News & Analysis – Asia Pacific – India – Dispute Resolution


Jet Airways (“Jet“) and Etihad Airways (“Etihad“) have proposed to enter into a contract whereby Jet proposes to sell 24% of its stake to Etihad. The Foreign Investment Promotion Board has provided conditional consent for this deal based on certain riders. One of the conditions is that all shareholder disputes and disputes under the shareholder agreement would have to be adjudicated under Indian law (rather than English law, as previously proposed). The FIPB however stated that any other arbitration not in relation to shareholder disputes could be resolved via arbitration under English law.
