Kuwait: CLDP Organizes Conference on ADR for Kuwaiti Lawyers

April 22, 2019

On April 22, CLDP organized a conference with the Kuwait Commercial Arbitration Center for 150 lawyers on the role of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in resolving disputes involving start-ups and international transactions. Commercial litigation in Kuwait is lengthy, unpredictable and costly, which can deter commercial activity and investment for companies, including U.S. companies doing business in Kuwait. The conference focused on the importance of the enforcement of mediated settlement agreements to ensure that ADR can be an effective alternative to litigation in Kuwait.
