Commercial Disputes - Arbitration
DIFC law consists of the body of rules set down by the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) in partnership with the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). It combines the best practices of the LCIA with the comprehensive knowledge of the DIFC with respect to Middle East and North African legal and business cultures and practices. The Arbitration Rules were revised in 2016, and include topics from the inception of the arbitration (requests for arbitration), formation of the tribunal, the hearing, and the final award.
DIFC refers to the Dubai International Financial Centre. It is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) body providing arbitration and mediation services for the resolution of disputes in the Middle East and North Africa region. DIFC rules cover everything from the appointment of arbitrators to the form the final decision will take.
What is the DIFC-LCIA?
The DIFC-LCIA is a joint venture between the Dubai International Financial Centre and the London Court of International Arbitration.
