Augusta Ventures are proud sponsors of GAR Live: Dubai which is taking place on 17 November 2021.

Andrew Roberts, Investment Manager for construction and international arbitration disputes, will be on a panel discussing “the enduring Covid claim and post-crisis arbitration”, alongside esteemed panellists Celine Abi Habib Kanakri of Kennedys Law, John Fletcher of Kroll, Amir Ghaffari of Vinson & Elkins and Nesreen Osman of Pinsent Masons, and moderated by Michael Tonkin of HKA.  The panel will focus on the construction sector and what we see for the arbitration landscape as economies open up after more than a year of Covid-19 restrictions.

Chaired by Prof Dr Mohamed Abdel Wahab of Zulficar & Partners Law Firm and Kim Rosenberg of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, the full-day conference programme also includes the following, presented by an array of international arbitration thought leaders:

  • Keynote address from H.E. Justice Shamlan Al Sawalehi, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC)
  • Year in review: All the most important arbitration developments in the MENA region that you need to know about
  • The influence of shariah principles on international arbitration
  • State entities in arbitration
  • The GAR Live Debate: “This house believes it is time for page limits to be introduced for written submissions, just as we have chess-clocks in oral hearings.”
