As the effects of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to be felt around the world, businesses face significant levels of instability and uncertainty caused by weakened financial markets and disruption to workplace operations and business pipelines, and resulting in a growth in the number and types of disputes.
What will this mean for the future of disputes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA)?
The Baker McKenzie Dispute Resolution team explores ‘The Future of Disputes’ in our latest thought leadership publication and upcoming webinar series. You can download the guide in both English and Arabic in the links below.
You can also join us for the series of webinars we are holding throughout November. The series will kick off with a Plenary Session on Tuesday 3 November, followed by a number of Spotlight Sessions to explore key legal topics in depth.
