Energy Arbitration in the Middle East

Al Tamimi and Company’s international arbitration lawyers have contributed a chapter in this year’s Middle Eastern and African Arbitration Review published by Global Arbitration Review.

Thomas R. Snider, Partner and Head of Arbitration, Jane Rahman, Senior Counsel and Khushboo Shahdadpuri, Associate, have shared their insights on energy arbitrations in the Middle East.  In the chapter, a copy of which is attached and which can be found here, the authors deal with a broad range of topics including how resources are owned and managed in the region, how disputes tend to be resolved, and key trends in energy arbitrations related to the region including, for example, the increasing appeal of international arbitration in the region, the role of sanctions in arbitration, and the rise of energy infrastructure disputes.
