“Party Participation in an Arbitration," which will be held on Feb. 21, will showcase speakers from leading companies and international organizations, including Stephen Hibbert of Qatar Rail, Michael Mitchell of the Qatar Foundation, Thomas Wilson of Squire Patton Boggs, and Christopher Newmark, who will represent the ICC’s Global Commission on Arbitration and ADR.
“After the successful launch of the Arbitration Series last month and its positive reception, we are happy to continue to share knowledge on arbitration and ADR with the Qatari business community” Khalifa bin Jassim Al Thani, chairman of the ICC Qatar and executive board member of the ICC International Secretariat, said.
Al Thani said hundreds of disputes arise from the thousands of trade contracts that are signed every year, so understanding arbitration particularly useful.
“A key focus of our work has
been to ensure that all businesses operating in Qatar have knowledge
of and access to the best possible dispute resolution mechanisms
administered in the most efficient manner,” he said.
