Litigation and Dispute Resolution

  • We have one of the country’s leading litigation and arbitration practices, and an established track record of achieving successful outcomes for our clients.
  • Sharia expertise – we boast a team of veteran Saudi Arabian qualified lawyers, with experience in the intricacies of Sharia and its various schools. Our lawyers can access complex Arabic only sources and have graduated from prestigious local universities.
  • A deep understanding of Saudi Arabian regulations – We therefore bring that expertise to our litigation practice which gives us an edge over the more “litigation-only” firms of Saudi Arabia.
  • Experience at various courts and committees – we have appeared before the Board of Grievances, the General Courts, the Committee for the Resolution of Securities Disputes, the Labor Committee, the Banking Disputes Committee, Enforcement Court, and a host of other courts or judicial committees. We understand their processes and can effectively navigate their respective bureaucracies.
  • Licenses and oral advocacy – our litigation team is fully licensed in Saudi Arabia and attends hearings themselves. We do not outsource oral arguments or interaction with courts and have argued and appeared at over two hundred hearings. This offers you a significant advantage, in comparison with many other firms which routinely instruct external advocates, because you know that the advocates presenting your case have worked with you from day one and know the matter inside and out.
  • Contributing to the legal framework and setting precedents – we lead the market in shaping litigation and commercial arbitration. Zeyad Khoshaim was founding member of the board of the Saudi Centre for Commercial Arbitration, which aims to establish Saudi Arabian-based arbitration as a viable and effective forum for dispute resolution.
