EMAC kicks-off Dubai Arbitration Week with breakfast seminar

Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC) kicked-off Dubai Arbitration Week 2019 with the latest in its series of breakfast seminars.

Speaker at the seminar was Gordon Blanke, independent arbitrator and founding partner of Blanke Arbitration LLC. He shared insight on institutional arbitration; arbitration onshore v. offshore; the UAE’s year old federal arbitration law and everything one needs to know about law enforcement.

“Yet another year when EMAC inaugurates the Dubai Arbitration Week with a breakfast panel that indicates our unwavering commitment towards providing excellence in maritime arbitration and mediation,” Majid Obaid bin Bashir, chairman and secretary general, EMAC.

“As arbitration increasingly becomes the preferred method of dispute resolution, we believe that these series of events are essential to further engage both the legal and commercial communities to emphasize the cost and time benefits of alternative, specialised dispute resolution.”

EMAC will close off its breakfast series for the year in December 2019, focusing on the role that ship suppliers play in maritime.
