Dubai Arbitration Week is underway with an extensive programme of events. The CIArb Seminar opened proceedings on 13 November including a keynote address by Vincent Moran QC of Keating Chambers on "Turbulent and troublesome tribunals and the appearance of bias" and panel discussion on "What makes an effective and efficient seat in international arbitration?". Other events across the coming week include a keynote address from Jacomijn van Haersolte-van Hof (Director General, LCIA) on diversity in international arbitration, the MENA Young Arbitrators Conference, at which senior associate Robert Stephen will moderate a Tylney Hall style Q&A session, and the third annual GAR Live Dubai Symposium co-moderated by partner Caroline Kehoe.
Attracting an ever growing number of practitioners from around the world, Dubai Arbitration Week consolidates Dubai's position as an arbitration hub and the main centre for the resolution of commercial disputes in the Middle East. For more information, please see here.
