Aceris Law LLC has successfully resolved another ICC arbitration under Saudi Arabian law, obtaining the objectives of its client in full. In the dispute, Aceris Law represented the claimant, a sub-contractor, in a dispute involving breaches of a contract for engineering, procurement and construction activities. The place of arbitration was Paris.
Aceris Law has served as counsel in over a half dozen arbitrations under Saudi Arabian law in the recent past, under the ICC Rules of Arbitration and the LCIA Arbitration Rules. The disputes have primarily involved the manufacturing industry, the construction industry and the defence industry. Aceris Law has also served as counsel, or its lawyers have served as arbitrator, for disputes in the Middle East under the DIAC Arbitration Rules and the Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre.
“We are always pleased to resolve the disputes of our clients in a cost-effective manner,” said William Kirtley, the principal of Aceris Law. “Our goal is to win every dispute, for every client, while charging 1/3 the legal fees of the large corporate firms we typically face. While Saudi law has a bad reputation outside of Saudi Arabia due to penalties under Sharia criminal law, Saudi contractual law is highly developed and perfectly suited to resolving complex contractual disputes in the 21st century.“
