The first seminar in this series is “Drafting Arbitration Clauses” and will be held on 24 January 2017. 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.
Drafting Arbitration Clauses
When drafting a contract and beginning any contractual relationship, parties should take time to consider the dispute resolution provisions in that contract, especially those provisions dealing with the arbitration of disputes. Squire Patton Boggs attorneys will walk through the ICC model dispute resolution clause, showing how parties can tailor this to the needs and details of each contractual relationship. Issues to be discussed will include defining what disputes can be arbitrated, creating a process for parties to attempt the resolution of disputes prior to entering arbitration, and considerations like defining arbitrators, arbitration provider forum selection, and stipulating the seat of the arbitration.
Presentation will be conducted in English with Arabic Translation
