Litigation & Dispute Resolution (Manama)

No one likes disputes. At best they are a distraction, at worst they can undermine businesses, relationships and reputations.

At Charles Russell Speechlys, we are committed to managing and resolving your disputes as swiftly as possible. Our experienced, partner-led teams work closely with you to fully understand the issues you are facing.

We focus our energies on achieving the best possible outcome for you and your organisation using the most appropriate dispute resolution techniques. We work with governments, regulators, sovereign wealth funds, multinational corporations, major companies and family businesses.

Our team has experts across a range of industries from media to medicine, telecoms to trusts, manufacturing to insurance and property to professional negligence.

We work throughout the Middle East on banking and corporate litigation, arbitrations and negotiations – handling some of the most complex, sensitive and high value claims in the region. 

We have experience of: 

  • Mediation: a confidential, quick and costeffective process involving an appointed neutral third party. Our team includes accredited mediators.
  • Arbitration: with arbitration centres in Cairo, Dubai, Qatar and Bahrain there is a growing trend towards arbitration. Our team includes members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
  • Adjudication: a streamlined process leading to an enforceable decision from an expert. Our team includes accredited adjudicators.
  • Litigation: when litigation is necessary we act with commitment and tenacity.

We have developed strong links with local counsel in a wide range of jurisdictions and are committed to providing a personal, cost-effective service.

Our expertise covers a variety of industries, including:

  • technology
  • energy and natural resources
  • sports
  • banking and finance
  • real estate and construction
  • aviation, and
  • telecommunications.

Our team was shortlisted for the 'Litigation & Dispute Resolution Team of the Year' Award at the Oath Middle East Awards 2015; we were the only Bahrain-based legal team to be included on the shortlist.
