Litigation and Dispute Resolution Service

Disputes can arise even in the most prudent business. The key is to keep sight of what is important, be objective about issues of liability and plan for an outcome that is realistic.
Our Middle East team of litigation and dispute resolution lawyers covers Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Amman, Baghdad, Doha and Riyadh. It includes both English and Arabic speakers, and lawyers across different sectors.

In the countries where we do not have an office, we have close ties with an established network of referral firms. This includes countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council as well as Arabic-speaking North Africa.

We are skilled in all forms of dispute management, including adjudication, arbitration, expert determination, litigation, negotiation and mediation. And, as you would expect from one of the World's largest full service law firms, our clients benefit from our high quality resources, specialist experience and worldwide brand recognition.

We regularly act in cases in the local courts and in domestic and international arbitration centres, dealing with commercial disputes of all kinds across all sectors - from high volume, small value claims to multi-party, high value, multi-jurisdictional disputes.

Every member of our team is committed to delivering a high level of service, using our award winning RAPID Resolution project management to enable clients to stay in control of the process and of the costs they incur.


"Continuity in the business is fundamental. What we talked about was certainty, predictability, how much it was going to cost and what the objectives were that we were trying to achieve as part of the litigation.. It [RAPID Resolution] is so closely akin to the way that we would run a programme within Cap Gemini that I would absolutely support it in future scenarios where litigation and inclusion of lawyers as part of a solution was an essential part of the way forward.”

Peter R Smith, Cap Gemini

“Eversheds Sutherland has distinguished itself among external law firms for its practical insights into seemingly complex cases, and the speed with which they provide a complete and thoughtful response. In our global economy, there are very few firms you can call with a problem on Monday evening and have the answer from their Asian office on your arrival at the office on Tuesday morning. Eversheds Sutherland delivers!”

Joseph Teklits, Unisys Corporation
