Arbitration at SERAJ Advocacy & Legal Counseling
We provide local and international business communities with arbitration services, including modern and well-equipped meeting and hearing rooms. Our role in the dispute resolution process is to administer cases and client representation from filing to closing. This includes the appointment of arbitrators, attendance at arbitration hearings, and providing users with information on dispute resolution options, including amicable settlements.
Our experience extends to high-value, complex and cross-border disputes across key sectors. Our team has substantial experience working in domestic and international arbitrations as counsels and arbitrators.

We are available to serve as arbitrators either as the sole member of a tribunal or as part of a three-member tribunal. We are available for arbitrations in Amman (Jordan), Dubai and Abu Dhabi (UAE), Doha, (Qatar), Manama (Bahrain), Jeddah and Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), and the wider Middle East countries.
We also provide training on arbitration, internationally and domestically, and we regularly speak at conferences, seminars, and workshops and offer professional development lectures.

Our team specializes in disputes arising out of significant construction and infrastructure projects. We work seamlessly with our front-end construction experts.

We provide expertise on Jordanian and UAE laws and practice, including retention and supervision of local lawyers in the Jordanian and UAE courts.
We advise our clients on all aspects of launching proceedings against a state or defending a state against proceedings under the ICSID rules, as well as arbitration cases under other rules, such as the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and ad hoc investor–state and state–state cases.
