Dubai Islamic Bank Pjsc v Paymentech Merchant Services Inc: QBD 24 Nov 2000

The place of arbitration, the juridical seat, was necessarily and inherently established at the time when an arbitration began, and could not subsequently be moved, save with the consent of the parties. Until the point where the arbitration commenced, the juridical seat could be established as required under the Act by looking at all the circumstances, but to allow it to be reviewed and changed after commencement would allow it to become peripatetic.
