Aceris Law LLC is pleased to announce that it has successfully resolved another ICC arbitration on behalf of a Middle Eastern client against a leading Saudi construction company. The arbitration, which was governed by Saudi law, concerned prolongation costs, amongst other construction law-related issues, in relation to a large refinery project located in Saudi Arabia. The Respondent was defended by a well-regarded London-headquartered international law firm with over 2,200 lawyers.
“We have been involved in many arbitrations under Saudi law in recent years, under the LCIA Arbitration Rules, the ICC Rules of Arbitration and the rules of the London Chamber of Arbitration and Mediation. Nearly all the outcomes have been highly positive for our clients. As we offer very reasonable legal fees for the highest quality international arbitration legal representation, I have no doubt that we will serve in many other arbitrations involving clients or disputes related to the Middle East over the years to come,” said William Kirtley of Aceris Law. “We are quite comfortable serving as counsel in disputes where underlying documents are in Arabic, and we have access to our Special Counsel whenever native Arabic language capacity is required. Isabela Monnerat Mendes of Aceris Law was the primary associate assisting on this matter.”
Aceris Law has served as counsel in many arbitrations involving Middle Eastern legal entities, for and against companies based in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, routinely facing the largest international law firms in the world. While many disputes in the region have involved large industrial projects, Aceris Law has also served as counsel in disputes in the oil and gas, cement, technology, media, and military industries, as well as disputes involving the international sale of goods, failed joint ventures and the international sale of goods.
