About the Series
The ICC Qatar Commission on Arbitration and ADR is hosting a monthly series of seminars from January to May 2017 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.
Preparing for an Arbitration
Entering an arbitration without proper preparation is like entering a transaction without adequate due diligence. Because arbitrations typically involve compelling arguments by competing parties, thorough preparation can impact the results significantly. Tarek Saad of Squire Patton Boggs will provide insight into the different phases and timelines during the build up to an arbitration, and will interact with attendees to discuss the important steps involved in laying the groundwork for success in an arbitration.
Presentation will be conducted in English with Arabic Translation
Tarek Saad provides clients value in assessing, managing, and resolving complex, high-value commercial disputes. Tarek has substantial experience using a wide variety of conflict resolution methods across a broad range of industries, acting for clients in early-stage negotiations and resolutions, proceedings involving emergency injunctive relief, mediations, arbitrations, motions hearings, agency proceedings, trials in state and federal courts before judges and juries, and on appeals – including oral arguments – in state and federal courts.
In addition to his primary focus on resolving his clients’ international disputes, Tarek frequently counsels clients in a variety of commercial contexts, including business torts and transactions, intellectual property, trade secrets, non-solicits/non-competes, consumer protection statutes, securities laws, and contract disputes. He also practices regularly in the area of employment law, counseling clients on the substantive issues involved in drafting employment-related agreements, employee handbooks, termination decisions, reductions-in-force, and other employment-related subjects. Tarek also defends employers facing claims asserted by employees, contractors, and third parties.
