Global law firm Squire Patton Boggs and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Qatar will co-host a seminar on “ICC Emergency Arbitration Provisions as an Alternative to Qatar Court” at the Qatar Chamber of Commerce premises in Doha, on Wednesday, April 17, from 9 A.M. until 10:30 A.M.
The event will focus on the key emergency arbitration provisions of the ICC that enable a party to apply for “urgent interim or conservatory measures that cannot await the constitution of an arbitral tribunal.”
This seminar is proudly supported by the Qatar Chamber of Commerce. Tarek Saad, of counsel in Squire Patton Boggs’ Doha Office, will lead the seminar, giving an overview of Emergency Arbitration Provisions, explaining the process of enforcing emergency awards in Qatar and advising on the practical lessons of a recent case example. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session open to the floor.
Saad specialises in assessing, managing and resolving complex, high-value commercial disputes in Qatar and internationally. He 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 and court trials.
The managing partner of the Doha office of Squire Patton Boggs and head of the ICC Qatar Arbitration and ADR Commission, Charbel Maakaron, explains the importance of the seminar to businesses in Qatar: “This discussion will be invaluable for everyone seeking to understand how emergency arbitration functions and key concerns such as the enforceability of decisions.”
ICC Qatar is the globally influential national committee of the Paris-based ICC in the State of Qatar, and works to connect businesses of the country to the world, and the world to the businesses of Qatar.
