About the Series

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.

Party Participation In An Arbitration:

You decided to bring a dispute to arbitration, you found legal counsel, and together you drafted and submitted a request for arbitration to the ICC. What now? While legal counsel has a lot of work in the arbitration, parties are not simply “along for the ride.” The process of arbitration involves a back and forth between parties to the dispute and their legal counsel, as the parties have to make strategic decisions about the dispute, have to keep up to date on dispute progress and upcoming deadlines, respond to document requests, provide fact witnesses and witness statements, and review and comment on submittals to the tribunal. A panel of distinguished individuals from Qatar Foundation, Qatar Rail, and the ICC will discuss their processes for working with counsel while in arbitration, both good and bad experiences from prior disputes, and lessons learned from their experiences.
