First SMART contracting seminar in Dubai

News / / Dubai

On Thursday 7 February 2019, we held our first SMART contracting seminar in Dubai as a newly merged firm.

The seminar which is tailored for professionals in the oil and gas industry featured a panel of speakers who addressed topics such as drafting and negotiating indemnities (Natalie Jensen), issues relating to the mechanics of a contract including formation, variation and force majeure (Anna Fomina and Gina Steiger). Rania Tadros spoke about mediation as a dispute resolution option in the Middle East and Justin Whelan addressed new issues of cyber security. David Galea spoke about the transactional services that we can offer as part of the newly merged firm. If you are interested in our future SMART seminars or would like a copy of the presentations, please contact dubai.marketing@incelaw.com
