UAE Workshop on the New ICC Rules

Event : ICC – UAE Workshop on the New ICC Rules of Arbitration and ICC-UAE Commission on Arbitration AGM

Date : 8th February 2012, at The Monarch Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road Dubai

ICC-UAE is going to organize a Workshop on the New ICC Rules of Arbitration on 8th February 2012 in the Monarch Hotel, Dubai. On 1 January 2012, a comprehensive revision of the ICC RULES OF ARBITRATION has come into effect. First published in 1923, the ICC Rules of Arbitration were revised for the last time in 1998. Given the experience gained with the application of the 1998 Rules over the past decade, and the ever increasing complexity of arbitral proceedings, time had come to upgrade again the Rules.

The new ICC Rules of arbitration will bring significant changes to the day-to-day practice of arbitral proceedings, whilst retaining the key features of ICC arbitration. The overall objective of the revised Rules is to enhance the efficiency of ICC arbitrations, with the view of keeping costs under better control and also to reducing the time taken to bring these arbitrations to an end.

The Workshop will be conducted by Mr. Michael Buhler, the LL.M. Partner, Jones Day; Co- Chair, Task Force on the Revision of the ICC Rules of Arbitration, Mr. Jose Feris the Deputy Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris, France and will be moderated by Mr. Sami Houerbi, the Director of the ICC Eastern Mediterranean, Middle-East and Africa ICC Dispute Resolution Services.

Mr. Essam Al Tamimi, the chairman of ICC – UAE Commission on Arbitration and senior partner of Tamimi & Co will give the welcome speech, and H. E. Humaid Mohammed Ali Salem the Director General of UAQ Chamber of Commerce and BOD of ICC-UAE will also attend the event.

The workshop is expected to be attended by a large number Arbitrators, legal practitioners, in-house counsel and engineers from around UAE.

The workshop will be followed by meeting of the steering committee of ICC – UAE Commission on Arbitration and General Assembly Meeting of ICC-UAE Commission on Arbitration.
