Both in investment and in commercial arbitration, it has become more and more frequent that a party raises the objection of corruption, money laundering, fraud or bid rigging. The challenges this presents for arbitrators and parties are considerable: What are the limits of the objection, how do you prove it, how can you fight unfounded allegations? If proven, the problems really only begin: What are the consequences? Is jurisdiction denied or is the issue dealt with on merits?
