        We are well-equipped to represent our clients in both local and international litigation/arbitration.

        We have counselled in both institutional and ad hoc arbitrations under a wide range of governing laws (both procedural and on the merits), seated in the Middle East, Europe, the US and Asia.

        Our Dispute Resolution team is made up of some of the best litigators and arbitration specialists in the region. Between them, they have decades of experience and are recognised as thought leaders in their field.

        We act in institutional and ad-hoc arbitration proceedings seated in the world’s leading arbitration centres. We also represent clients in local court (including in the UAE and KSA).

        We have significant experience in local and complex cross-border disputes, including in the oil and gas sector, engineering and project management, defence, security, real estate and hospitality sectors.
