Managing Disputes in the MENA Region: An Introduction to Litigation and Arbitration

September 29, 2020

COVID-19 continues to have a major impact on the global economy, and particularly so in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) region. Many projects have been delayed, contracts terminated and numerous entities are facing liquidity issues. This has resulted in an increasing number of parties evoking the dispute resolution mechanism in their contracts in an attempt to recover losses and apply commercial pressure.

Locke Lord LLP and Stephenson Harwood LLP invite you to an insightful webinar where you will be provided with an overview of litigation and arbitration proceedings in the MENA region.

The session will broadly cover:

  • a geopolitical overview of the MENA region
  • an overview of litigation and arbitration in the MENA region with a focus on the UAE and Saudi Arabia
  • the nuances of legal practice (including privilege and confidentiality)
  • the compliance landscape

This session will be followed by a short Q&A session.

Who should attend?
U.S.-based institutions doing business in, or considering investing into, the MENA region.
