INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER SAYS THAT QATAR ENHANCES CULTURE OF COMMERCIAL ARBITRATION

Doha, – The International Chamber of Commerce Qatar (ICC Qatar) held a panel discussion on ” Persuading the Tribunal”, the fifth in ICC Qatar’s monthly “Arbitration Series” as part of the 2017 programme of its Commission on Arbitration and ADR.

The discussion focused on ways in which the parties and their legal counsel may persuade the tribunal to find their favor. Vice President and Head of Dispute Management with HKA (Hill International) Wayne Clark said that parties in the procedure juncture should look for early closure. He asserted that the Tribunal has a duty to conduct the arbitration in an efficient and cost-effective manner in accordance with the ICC Rules and Qatar’s Arbitration Law.

He also gave examples of the delaying procedural and tactical manoeuvers that parties might use while solving disputes by arbitration, including appointment of arbitrators and experts, requests for stay of proceedings, disagreement over Terms of Reference , requests for extensions of time to submit pleadings, preliminary and other meetings, bickering over disclosure and telling the tribunal how to manage the arbitration.
