We handle complex, high-value Domestic and International Arbitrations all across the globe. Whether institutional or ad hoc, our lawyers are experts in all aspects of arbitration laws, procedures, international norms and practices.
Our arbitration team comprises international lawyers who have extensive local experience of practicing in the United Arab Emirates. It is our lawyers’ strong background of practicing in England and Wales, United States, France, and other notable commonwealth jurisdictions combined with their local expertise that allows us to handle arbitration proceedings in compliance with local UAE procedural and evidentiary laws governing all arbitration proceedings seated in the Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, and RAK.
We are experts in the management and satisfaction of pre-arbitration conditions. Multi-tiered dispute resolution clauses, expert determinations, mediations and conciliations, the arbitration process itself and finally the enforcement of arbitration awards locally as well as abroad.
We have successfully represented clients on both aspects of post-arbitration procedures. We have successfully enforced awards locally as well as through the application of the New York Convention and we have nullified high value awards for lack of procedural efficacy.
Our experience spreads across the popular arbitration seats: London, Paris, New York, Switzerland in addition to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
We routinely conduct arbitrations under the Rules of Dubai International Arbitration Center (DIAC), Abu Dhabi Commercial Conciliation and Arbitration Center (ADCCAC), with some of our high profile and high value matters being heard before the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and ICC International Court of Arbitration.
Our arbitration team stays abreast with all recent developments in the laws and rules of arbitration around the globe. Our team members are admitted members and fellows of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and IBA Arbitration Committees and are often called upon to comment on various developments taking place in the UAE.
We have handled over 250 Arbitration and Mediation matters since the global financial crises of 2008.
