Arbitration Law

Arbitration Law

Arbitration Law in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) serves as a dynamic legal framework designed to offer parties an effective alternative for dispute resolution outside of traditional court proceedings. A significant player in this landscape is the Dubai International Arbitration Centre (DIAC), which plays a crucial role in administering and facilitating arbitration proceedings. 

Arbitration Law under DIAC include:

Enforceability of Arbitration Agreements:

The UAE Arbitration Law recognizes the enforceability of arbitration agreements, allowing parties to choose arbitration as the preferred method for resolving disputes. DIAC is a prominent institution that administers such arbitrations.

Arbitral Tribunals:

Arbitration proceedings, often administered by DIAC, involve arbitral tribunals comprising arbitrators chosen by the parties. This selection process ensures that the tribunal possesses the necessary expertise for a fair and informed resolution.

Arbitration Procedures and DIAC Rules:

The arbitration procedures, whether initiated by the parties or under the auspices of DIAC, can be tailored to the specific needs of the dispute. DIAC has established rules that govern the arbitral process, ensuring clarity and efficiency.

Confidentiality and DIAC's Role:

Arbitration proceedings, particularly those managed by DIAC, benefit from confidentiality, providing parties with a level of privacy not always available in traditional court settings. DIAC's involvement emphasises the efficiency and confidentiality of the arbitration process.

Arbitration Awards and DIAC Recognition:

Awards rendered by arbitral tribunals, often under the administration of DIAC, are final and binding. The UAE Arbitration Law provides for the recognition and enforcement of these awards, contributing to the efficacy of the arbitration process.

Interim Measures and DIAC Procedures:

DIAC, in line with international best practices, allows for the grant of interim measures or preliminary orders by arbitral tribunals to safeguard the rights of parties during arbitration proceedings.

Challenge and Annulment of Awards:

The UAE Arbitration Law, including DIAC procedures, outlines limited grounds for challenging or seeking the annulment of arbitral awards, reinforcing the finality and effectiveness of the arbitration process.

International Arbitration and DIAC's Global Recognition:

The UAE, including DIAC, is a signatory to the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, streamlining the international recognition and enforcement of DIAC-administered awards.
