The Middle East and North Africa volume of the CMS Expert Guide to International Arbitration 


In 2020, we launched the fifth edition of the CMS Expert Guide to International Arbitration, focusing initially on 25 jurisdictions in Western Europe and Central and Eastern Europe.

We are now pleased to launch the complete third volume of the Guide, which covers nine jurisdictions in the Middle East and North Africa. Arbitration practitioners from across the region have provided a detailed overview of the law and practice of arbitration in Abu Dhabi, Algeria, Dubai, Iran, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

Despite arbitration having long been the preferred method for resolving international commercial disputes, certain key elements of arbitration law still vary across these and other jurisdictions.

This fifth edition of the Guide is the first to be entirely online and has been fully updated. It does not seek to provide an exhaustive academic analysis, but rather a comprehensive, practical and user-friendly insight into the legal frameworks for arbitration across the globe.

Further volumes will follow covering the South and South East Asia and the Pacific, the Americas and South and East Africa.

We hope you find the Guide useful. Should you require more information or specific advice, whether in the jurisdictions covered here or beyond, please contact the authors identified in each chapter, or your usual CMS contact.
