In an economy where arbitration is increasingly gaining ground as the dispute resolution mechanism of choice, the Middle East has responded to its need through the creation of experienced centres across the region.
Arbitration, whilst a private and confidential dispute resolution method, is nevertheless a form of legal battle. As such, it requires mindful preparation, the right tools and the right team on your side, all including legal argument and assessment of evidence as well as reliable advice on choosing the right forum in terms of applicable rules and appointed arbitrators.
Our lawyers undertake representation of clients in local and international arbitration proceedings across a variety of industry sectors including construction and engineering, insurance and reinsurance, corporate, franchising, marketing and media. We apply our proficiency and expertise when representing and advising clients seeking legal support in arbitration proceedings on all stages encountered, from helping in choosing the right arbitral tribunal to applying our effective advocacy skills in arbitration hearings.
And with the valuable support of our own experienced litigation teams with local rights of audience before the Courts across all our office locations, we can offer our clients, an all-inclusive range of professional legal services, that will ensure that the procedural and substantive integrity of a final arbitral award is addressed at the all important stage of local Court ratification.
Whilst adjudicator’s decisions are not enforceable as such, they are usually forged through legal representation that requires skills very similar to those applied in arbitration, although aimed at a more practical and cost conscious goal.
We provide legal advice and guidance to our clients that invariably starts from the often confusing stage of deciphering what dispute resolution clause has been agreed to. Through our professional network, we assist clients in obtaining technical expertise to line up the evidential support that is necessary for them to reap the maximum benefits from the adjudication process. Our client focused legal services are designed to efficiently provide a legal assessment of all evidence adduced, necessary for extracting a decision that would help manage the risks of a subsequent arbitration more efficiently or even pave the way to a successful and cost saving settlement.
