21 September, 2020

Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is an award-winning international financial centre (IFC) located in the capital of the UAE. ADGM is the first jurisdiction in the region to directly apply English common law and stands out as a leader in the arbitration community with its modern pro-arbitration framework that has been modelled on the UNCITRAL Model Law. This framework is superbly complemented by the ADGM Arbitration Centre (ADGMAC), which is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and hearing facilities. ADGMAC’s hearing rooms and other facilities are available for arbitration cases and mediations, regardless of the institution administering the arbitration or mediation. In addition, the parties can, and are encouraged to, make use of ADGMAC regardless of whether the seat is ADGM. ADGMAC supports the local and international dispute resolution community through signature thought leadership events and initiatives, including its Arbitration Guidelines and Knowledge Series.
