ICC Qatar hosts webinar on Emerging Trends in International Disputes

Dr. Sheikh Thani bin Ali Al Thani addressing the webinar.

In a pre-recorded video presentation, Dr. Sheikh Thani provided an overview of Qatar’s increased involvement on the world stage in the area of mediation as a means to resolve an international dispute. He noted that Qatar was one of the first states to sign the UN Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation, otherwise known as the Singapore Convention on Mediation, which entered into force on September 12, 2020.

“Qatar was among the first three countries that ratified the convention, citing that the Amir H H Sheikh issued an instrument of ratification approving the convention on February 12, 2020,” said Dr. Sheikh Thani.

Addressing the participants, Laird highlighted the benefits of mediation in international disputes, the issues Qatari companies should consider, and the option to use the ICC Mediation Rules to help increase enforceability of contractual settlements in countries that are signatories to the Singapore Convention.

During the event, Adra provided a valuable overview of new amendments to the ICC Arbitration Rules, which will take effect for cases submitted to the ICC after January 1, 2021. She highlighted improvements to the flexibility, transparency and efficiency of ICC arbitrations, especially as the world is seeing and experiencing more virtual proceedings and increasingly complex cases.

Winston then discussed the benefits and challenges involved in seeking interim measures and the appointment of emergency arbitrators in cases that require urgent relief such as orders to freeze assets or preserve evidence. 

He also considered issues in relation to the enforcement of both interim measures and final awards.
