Arbitration in the Gulf: What's happening?

Gordon Nardell QC addressed the recent conference on Energy Arbitration and Dispute Resolution in the Middle East and Africa, organised by the London Centre for International Law Practice and hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills at their London office. Gordon gave an update on arbitration in the Gulf states, focusing on developments in the UAE and Qatar. Gordon’s presentation covered topics including the contested “conduit” jurisdiction of the DIFC Court for enforcing arbitral awards against UAE assets; and the implications of the Saudi-led GCC boycott of Qatar for dispute-resolution there.

A copy of Gordon’s slides can be found below.
