Taking place in English and Arabic, this fourth annual conference is a "must attend" for arbitration professionals who want to keep up to date on the latest arbitration developments in the MENA region. The conference will offer a line-up of top-class speakers, topical discussions and relevant news, but also an excellent opportunity to network.

Special Counsel Dr. Maxi Scherer will speak during the "Emergency arbitration" session, which will focus on the application for emergency arbitration, appointment of emergency arbitrator, establishment of a procedural timetable and other procedural issues, as well as the oral hearing and subsequent order or award issued by the emergency arbitrator, focusing on the impact of the emergency arbitrator process on issues such as enforcement and the ICC scrutiny process. Featuring arbitrators and practitioners who have first-hand experience in the application of the ICC emergency arbitrator procedure, this session will provide both an extensive analysis of the distinctive characteristics of this procedure through the study of a mock case and an opportunity to hear the speakers' personal experience.
