The ICC Qatar Commission on Arbitration and ADR is pleased to announce that from January to May 2017, it will host a monthly series of seminars on Arbitration and ADR in Qatar. This series follows the Commission’s charge to foster the development of trade and investment between Qatar and the international business community. The series is not only aimed at arbitration practitioners, but intended to help inform professionals across the entire Qatari community from businesses, governmental agencies and public and private sectors to students.
The seminars are presented by Commission members and distinguished colleagues, and will address the changes and developments in foreign and domestic arbitration in Qatar, how Qatari professionals might prepare for arbitration and ADR proceedings, and discussion of how arbitration in Qatar links to the international business community and investments.
Qatar’s New Arbitration Law:
With two years having passed since the release of a draft arbitration law, H.H. the Emir of Qatar last month announced the highly anticipated Arbitration Law for Civil and Commercial Matters, Law No. 2 of 2017. This panel discussion is one of the first opportunities for an expert presentation on, and group consideration of, the new law. Topics will include the implications for arbitration agreements for private and government entities, procedural aspects of the new law, differences from the current legislation, and the role in arbitral proceedings of the Qatar courts including the Qatar International Court of the Qatar Financial Centre.
