Arbitration in Lebanon is the first publication that covers, in a single volume, the complete area of arbitration law as it stands in Lebanon and comparative analysis with French, English and other arbitration systems.
The author focuses on the advantages and pitfalls of arbitration in this once vibrant French colony, suggesting possible improvements for a way forward through a more efficient, reliable and cost effective arbitration system.
‘The subject of this excellent book is indeed a fitting and necessary contribution to the jurisprudence of the East and the West. It should come as no surprise that, with trade there comes the need to ensure that relations between merchant and customer and merchant and merchant are governed in an orderly fashion, so that disputes may be resolved with due expedition, ensuring justice for all.
The author, has indeed made a seminal contribution to the jurisprudence of alternative dispute resolution by seamlessly bringing together the doctrines of arbitration, the procedures and the manner in which disputes may be resolved, resorting to the very rich source materials that exist.
The book is, and will become, a very handy, if not indispensable reference tool to all who seek to trade within the Middle East, and especially in the Levant. All too readily, and ever more so with common sense coming to the fore, alternative dispute resolution has now become the norm, if not de rigueur, for commercial disputation and its efficacious resolution.
This book presents and supplements the lacuna that has been present for so long and so agonisingly absent from the shelves of any erstwhile learner. It will, and I am confident must be a source of reference for all those who seek to embark upon trade within the Middle East, and the author is to be congratulated for filling the vacuum that has been so void for so long.’ From the Foreword by Stephen J Stanton
