Join us for an insightful panel discussion that delves into the intricate legal landscape of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) within the context of the burgeoning foreign investment relationship between the two countries and Germany.

This dynamic session is tailored for legal practitioners, in-house counsels, and business professionals seeking to gain a comprehensive understanding of the complexities surrounding the enforcement of arbitral awards and judgments in this vibrant region. Discover the latest developments in the legal framework, including recent amendments to institutional rules and the national arbitration laws which provide an efficient framework to seek relief from a tribunal, and are aimed at streamlining enforcement of both foreign and domestic arbitral awards.

Key discussion points will include an overview of changes to the landscape for the enforcement of awards in the UAE and KSA, an exploration of the trends towards the enforcement of awards, and a comprehensive analysis of the types of remedies available and considerations for their enforceability. Furthermore, our esteemed panelists will provide invaluable insights from a practitioner, institution and in-house perspective.
