November 19, 2019 \ 10:00 am –
1:00 pm EST
Saudi Arabia is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most improved global economies, in large part as a result of its streamlined regulatory and commercial arbitration reforms. Knowledge of the Kingdom’s regulatory and arbitration bylaws are crucial to achieving success in the Saudi market.
JOIN US on November 19th for an interactive discussion with the Saudi Center for Commercial Arbitration (SCCA) on new regulations that enable companies to resolve contract disputes through commercial arbitration. This roundtable is essential to U.S. companies operating and conducting business in Saudi Arabia. Attendees will learn about the SCCA’s Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services.
Established by Royal Decree in 2014, the SCCA is a non-profit organization that aims to develop a deeper understanding and use of arbitration, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution in domestic and transnational disputes within Saudi Arabia and the wider region. SCCA also provides users with professional services by staff trained in international best practice standards contributing to the rapid and effective settlement of domestic and international commercial disputes.
• Dr. Hamed Hassan Merah, CEO, SCCA
• Mr. Christian Alberti, Chief of ADR, SCCA
• Mr. James MacPherson, Special Counsel, SCCA
The agenda will include a presentation on SCCA’s ADR services, case studies, Q&A session, and a networking lunch.
Interested companies will have an opportunity to meet with the SCCA representatives following the program.
Who Should Attend
Law firms, corporate counsels and senior decision-makers at U.S. companies active in industries such as construction, infrastructure, energy, financial services, defense, entertainment, and technology doing business or considering expansion in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.
