Preliminary case details 

ICP (Multimab) Ltd v SDC Ltd

ICP (Multimab) Ltd have claimed £18.7 million losses as a result of fraudulent misrepresentation, wilful default, breach of contract, and/or negligence by SDC Ltd; and that they have been coerced into agreeing a contract variation under economic duress. SDC deny these claims and have entered their own Counterclaim of £225,000 for delay.

The Contract between the parties, for a £6 million turnkey distillation unit, includes a dispute resolution clause; that all disputes will be resolved finally by arbitration.

The arbitration process reaches its conclusion with a hearing, followed by an arbitral award on the evening of the 30th April.

At the hearing, counsel for both parties will make brief opening statements, cross-examine two fact and two expert witnesses, and make closing submissions.
