For most foreign investors in India, arbitration remains the preferred method of dispute resolution. In our latest India Arbitration Round-Up, we review significant developments in Indian arbitration from the past 6 months. During this period, Indian court decisions have covered a broad range of issues arising out of investment disputes, domestic arbitration and the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.

But while the inherent difficulties in enforcing contracts still create a headache for foreign investors in India, recent decisions at least reflect the growing pro-arbitration outlook in the Indian courts.
