We are pleased to share our contribution in the 2021 Edition of GAR’s Middle Eastern and African Arbitration Review. MBH’s partners, Amr A. Abbas and John F. Matouk, co-authored this year’s Egypt’s Chapter. The chapter outlines the main features of Egypt’s arbitration legal framework along with shedding light on key developments in the arbitration field during 2020 in Egypt. This year’s developments includes the development of arbitration principles by the Egyptian courts concerning the definition of ‘international’ arbitration, removal of arbitrators, the application of the estoppel doctrine, virtual hearings, unfair compensation as a ground for annulment and the delocalisation and use of non-lawyers and foreign lawyers in arbitration proceedings.
Moamen Elwan, Hesham Elwakeel and Mohammed A. El Sherif, associates at MBH’s Arbitration Department, also assisted in the research needed for the preparation of this chapter.
