Where amicable settlement is not reached, Commercial Arbitration provides an alternative dispute resolution to the conventional judicial process before state courts. In recent years, arbitration became the most efficient way of solving disputes between opponents operating in the market including governmental institutions.
In this sense, members of the Firm have been involved in many ad-hoc and institutional arbitration cases in and out of Egypt either as arbitrators or as legal counsels to one of the parties. Most arbitration cases handled by the Firm are currently pending before arbitration centers. On average, the firm handles 2 to 3 new arbitration cases every year.
Our expertise covers a broad range of industries and commercial transactions and includes not only arbitration proceedings, but also encompasses arbitration related litigation, such as judicial review and arbitration award enforcement .
