International arbitration

In recent years, there has been an increase in the use of non-court methods for settling disputes, as a result of clients and consultants seeking to follow fast, less expensive and less adversarial methods of settling disputes. Therefore, lawyers have increasingly played the role of mediators and arbitrators in the mediation or arbitration cases attached to the courts and as a neutral third party in conducting early evaluation of disputes while upholding the impartiality values in the decision-making process.

Arbitration has become the best method for settling disputes that arise from or related to any commercial transaction. However, arbitration procedures are not a feasible option unless clients' rights are assigned to lawyers with experience in the field of dispute and are presented by an elite of specialized and legally accredited arbitration consultants. ETCO provides legal advice and support to our clients, and we are equipped with the necessary negotiation management skills to reach the optimal solution.
