9 April 2019: Rupert Choat speaking the The SCL (Gulf) in Dubai

18th Mar 2019

Date
09/04/2019

Time
6:30 pm GMT

Location
API World Tower, Sheikh Zayed Rd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates

Rupert Choat will speak to the SCL (Gulf) in Dubai at 6.30pm UAE time on 9 April 2019.

The talk, entitled “Six month arbitrations (under the ICC Rules 2017) in lieu of Dispute Boards. The UAE model?”, will look at ICC arbitration agreements (like those in FIDIC forms) concluded after 1 March 2017 which provide for 6-month (sole arbitrator) arbitrations for disputes worth under USD 2m, unless the parties opt out.

This method of resolving disputes piecemeal during the works compares favourably with Dispute Boards.  Rupert’s talk will address the question “have parties in the UAE long been ahead of the curve (given their tendency to omit Dispute Boards and provide for 6-month arbitrations)?” and look at to what extent UAE Federal Law No. 6 of 2018 on Arbitration bolsters 6-month arbitrations and what directions timetable one might expect in a 6-month arbitration.
