The Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre (QICDRC) and LexisNexis Middle East proudly announce the successful conclusion of the QICDRC Case Digest Launch with LexisNexis Seminar, held on February 8, 2024, at the Pullman Hotel. This collaborative event marked a significant milestone for both organisations, bringing together legal professionals and scholars in a forum that advanced insightful discussions and meaningful interactions.
The seminar, moderated by Umar Azmeh, Registrar of QICDRC, featured three distinguished guest speakers: Alex Whyatt from Eversheds Sutherland, Dr Reem Al-Ansari from the Al-Ansari Law Firm, and Roscoe Stuart Banks, from the Qatar Financial Centre. The speakers explored various cases handled by QICDRC, sharing their experiences, strategies, and insights. Beyond individual cases, the discussions extended to broader legal developments within the jurisdiction.
Commenting on the success of the seminar and launch, Faisal Rashid Al-Sahouti, CEO of the QICDRC, stated, "The launch of the QICDRC Case Digest demonstrates our commitment to transparency and knowledge sharing in the legal community. This initiative aligns with our mission to provide accessible resources that contribute to the continuous development of Qatar’s legal landscape.
"The QICDRC Case Digest serves as a valuable resource offering an examination of the various cases handled by the Court. Attendees had the unique opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge from the legal experts who actively participated in these cases. The event created a collaborative environment that facilitated engagement and networking among legal professionals.
As QICDRC experienced a 120% increase in its caseload from 2022 to 2023, the significance of the Case Digest became more pronounced. This Digest will be readily accessible on the court's official website bi-annually, ensuring open availability to the public and providing valuable insights into our judicial proceedings.
