It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre website, and I am very honored and proud to address you as the Chief Executive Officer of Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre.
The Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre is leading the way in developing outstanding international standards for an effective court system in the State of Qatar, and more widely in the region, through the example of our international judiciary, excellent governance, case management, procedural fairness, technology resources, and world leading dispute resolution schemes for businesses.
We are highly efficient with our resources and benefit from advanced technologies. Cases move expeditiously through the system and wait times are minimal. Technology has allowed us to standardize and simplify our processes, and connect more effectively with our clients and each other. Our operations are very transparent and user friendly.
High quality judicial decision-making is the most essential feature of any court system; it is central to the accomplishment of every aspect of our mission. The Qatar International Court judiciary has long been recognized for quality. We aim to preserve and enhance that strength by ensuring that judges in our court have the knowledge, information, resources, and support necessary to make legally correct decisions, to exercise sound discretion, and to communicate their rulings and reasoning in a manner that helps litigants understand the basis for decisions and promotes public understanding of judicial proceedings. Necessary resources include judicial education and mentoring; sufficient registrar, deputy registrar and other staff assistance; and access to legal research tools.
Thankfully the Court has, through its work over the past few years, acquired an outstanding reputation in the judicial field. According to the most recent report issued by the UK’s Ministry of Justice, the Qatar International Court’s judicial system has been ranked as one of the top six judicial systems internationally, placing Qatar on the international judicial map with regard to commercial disputes.
Our goal is to further develop a world class International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre and provide national and international civil and commercial dispute resolution services within Qatar and the Middle East region and globally within the wider word that are accessible, modern, expeditious, economical and responsive to the needs of global business markets.
Finally, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and I hope that you will find it of great benefit.
Chief Executive Officer
