Doctrine Of Group Of Companies, Can’t Implead Third Party To Arbitration: Delhi High Court

Doctrine Of Group Of Companies, Can’t Implead Third Party To Arbitration

Case: Sandeep Singh versus Simran Sodhi & Ors.

Coram: Justice V. Kameswar Rao

Case No.: ARB.P. 842/2019

Court Observation: “Having noted the position of law, I must state that the Doctrine of Group of Companies shall not be applicable to the facts of this case. The doctrine can be invoked in certain circumstances, to bind non-signatory affiliates to an arbitration agreement. However, here the petitioner was a partner in a partnership firm and is trying to bind a company, i.e., respondent No.3 to the arbitration agreement between him and respondent No.1, which is clearly impermissible as a partnership in its very nature cannot be equated with a company to invoke the Doctrine.”
