The Combar Gulf Committee was established in 2021 to develop the links which already exist between the English and Welsh commercial and arbitration bar and the legal community in the Gulf States. We plan to arrange a roundtable conference in Dubai in January 2023, which we hope to develop into an annual event. We will invite leading practitioners from the region to attend, in addition to guest speakers from England and Wales. In future years, we intend to hold events in other major cities in the Gulf.

Anyone wishing to make contact with the Gulf Committee or to find out more about its work is invited to contact the Combar Administrator or the co-Chairs; Tom Montagu-Smith KC (3VB) and George Spalton KC (4 New Square).
