As part of our international arbitration practice, last year Reed Smith launched a global series of roundtables on “Hot Topics in International Arbitration.” The aim of the roundtables is to bring thought leaders in international arbitration together to address issues of importance in this area of dispute resolution, and to generate ideas and solutions that can be disseminated more widely. Following the first two roundtables, held in London and Paris, the highlights of the third in the series, held in Dubai, are now published and we are delighted to make these available to you.

This event, the third in our “Hot Topics in International Arbitration” global roundtable series, was held in Dubai in March. Moderated by Reed Smith disputes partner Shourav Lahiri, we were joined by an eminent guest panel comprising Dr. Omar Aljazy, arbitrator and managing partner, Aljazy & Co; Christian P. Alberti, chief of ADR, Saudi Center for Commercial Arbitration; and Andrew Rigney Q.C., counsel, Crown Office Chambers, together with Reed Smith Dubai partner Michelle Nelson.
