ABSTRACT: Since the Dow Chemical case, the question regarding the possibility of extending the effects of the arbitration agreement to non-signatory parties is of great relevance in international arbitration, beeing the case Anel v. Trelleborg ("Trelleborg case"), decided by the São Paulo Court of Appeals in 2006, the paradigmatic case within the Brazilian law. Therefore, the present essay intends to address the main peculiarities involving the groups of companies' doctrine by analyzing its main cases in order to specify how and when can we identify the manifestation of the will within a group of companies and defend the extension of the arbitration agreement.
