Effective dispute resolution helps minimize the costs and adverse effects to relationships that often arise from the commercial disputes. If informal negotiation fails to resolve a dispute, mediation or arbitration can often be the next best option in order to avoid litigation in court. This course will give participants an insight into dispute resolution from the perspective of a lawyer. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the main differences between the various dispute resolution techniques with a particular focus on arbitration, in order to reduce the likelihood of disputes leading to court cases.
In this interactive training course participants will frequently work in pairs as well as in larger groups to complete exercises as well as regional and international case studies.
This course is suitable for professionals within all industries who are involved in contract management and resolving disputes including, but not limited to, project managers, contract managers, procurement managers, supply chain managers, contractors, architects, developers and engineers. This course would also highly benefit in-house council and legal advisors new to the region who require the fundamentals of dispute resolution in the GCC.
