Constantine Partasides QC will be a featured panellist on the upcoming webinar “Tools for Dispute Resolution in the New Middle East: Arbitration and Third-Party Funding.” The event, hosted by Validity Finance, will take place on Tuesday 26 January at 2:00 pm GMT.

After the recent establishment of formal ties with Israel, Middle East jurisdictions such as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are building new business relationships and are seeking insights on pragmatic considerations, including ways to prepare for potential disputes. The panel will explore key strategic questions and offer practical advice for in-house counsel guiding company management, corporate lawyers negotiating agreements, litigation and arbitration lawyers handling disputes that arise, and provide guidance to decision-makers around the world doing business in the Middle East.
