Overview

Our recent highlights include such substantial and high profile matters as advising a high profile engineering construction  company on a USD 470m claim;  advising a major technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing and financial services conglomerate in respect of its claims up and down the line on the Al Rayyan Stadium (a FIFA 2022 project) against the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy; advising a top Middle East construction company in a dispute with a Saudi Aramco entity concerning the Al Khafji offshore oilfield; representing a major Japanese industrial and engineering corporation in respect of an ICC arbitration against Acciona Agua in respect of an Independent Power and Water project; advising a South Korean manufacturing company in respect of claims against Ashghal on the Al Dhakira sewage treatment plant and; advising a Chinese construction and engineering company in respect of its claims against Kahramaa on the Mega Reservoir project.

Our pre-eminence in construction disputes is also of key importance in ranking the regional market for dispute resolution. All the major disputes in Qatar are construction related and our strength in this area gives us an impressive profile across the region. The construction disputes we have acted on in recent years include a diverse range of high profile projects in the State of Qatar – including key transport infrastructure.
