The teamhas managed to deal with many casesfiledlocally and internationallyin connection with real estate, civil and commercial disputes, and in light of new amendments to the new Saudi Arbitration Law, issued in 1433H, by inclusion of new package of advantages that have been put into action in arbitration disputes, and the new types of arbitrations, such as, Ad-hoc arbitration, institutional arbitration, domestic, foreign and international arbitration. In addition, the new Saudi Arbitration Law has taken into considerationthe law by which the arbitration will be governed in accordance with the choice of the contending parties, on condition of not violating theprovisions of Islamic Law and the international conventions to which Saudi Arabia is a party. This also applies to arbitrationthrough organization or permanent arbitration commissions, or arbitration centers outside the Kingdom, such as theGCC Arbitration Centre in Bahrain, the International Islamic Center for Reconciliation and Arbitration in Dubai, the Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris or the London Court of International Arbitration.
