The half-day Dispute Resolution conference will be held on 18 May 2022 in Riyadh, featuring legal experts from the construction law industry in the region and Saudi Arabia.

Following the successful first round of our Dispute Resolution Question Time this year with the first event in Dubai, held in February, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our dispute resolution conference, now set to take place in Saudi Arabia for the first time.

We are pleased to welcome you to Marriott Hotel, Riyadh where important discussions will unfold. The conference will take place on 18 May 2022 and will run from 9:00am to 12:00pm (KSA).

In keeping with Saudi Arabia’s ambitious Vision 2030, a staggering number and variety of development projects are either ongoing or in the pipeline in the kingdom. Following this construction landscape, the agenda for this year’s conference will bring together legal experts who will shed light on the reasons for finding more effective dispute resolution methods in the kingdom.
