The International Chamber of Commerce Qatar (ICC Qatar) will hold a seminar titled “The Endline of an Arbitration: Enforcement of Arbitral Awards” on May 22 in cooperation with the Qatar International Law Firm (QILF) and Qatar International Center for Conciliation & Arbitration (QICCA).
This will be the sixth and closing seminar of ICC Qatar’s Arbitration Series for the first half of the year and is part of what has become a very successful 2017 programme of its Commission on Arbitration and ADR.  The seminar will be presented by Abdelmonin Abutiffa, Legal Consultant at QIFL and Dr Minas Khachtadourian, Counselor of QICCA and aims to shed light on the enforcement of domestic and foreign arbitral awards and the national provisions and international conventions they are subject to.
Speakers will also highlight enforcement procedures conducted before national courts which are of vital importance to all disputing parties.
The “Arbitration Series” follows the Commission’s charge to foster the development of trade and investment between Qatar and the international business community. It has been designed to help inform not only arbitration practitioners but professionals across the entire Qatari community from businesses, governmental agencies and public and private sectors to students.
Charbel Maakaron, Chair of the ICC Qatar Commission on Arbitration and ADR, said, “This arbitration series has been immensely popular and very informative to the community. I look forward to hearing very relevant and helpful information about the enforcement of arbitration awards, as the new Arbitration laws in Qatar are just coming into force.
