Arbitration is growing, and unfortunately so is international fraud. Afridi & Angell’s Partner Chatura Randeniya, alongside Ossama Ebeid (Professor of criminal law – Cairo University) and Hassan Saeed (Managing Partner – ICLO UAE) came together for a panel discussion on “when arbitration and fraud meet” for the Asset Recovery Middle East webinar, organized by Informa Connect.
The panel members explored key issues in arbitrating fraud disputes such as; do emergency arbitrators really work – when are they effective, and what alternatives are there? Absent the powers of committal, do tribunals really have the power to control unruly fraudsters? If not, what options do practitioners have?
