Squire Patton Boggs is pleased to announce that Dara Sahab, an associate in its International Dispute Resolution Practice Group in Dubai, has been named by the ICC Young Arbitrators Forum as a representative member of its North Africa, Middle East & Turkey regional chapter for the 2021-2023 term, and representing Saudi Arabia in ICC YAF for the first time.
The Young Arbitrators Forum (YAF), the world’s largest network of its kind, is the International Chamber of Commerce’s young practitioners’ community dedicated to dispute resolution. Representatives are elected for a two-year mandate and responsible for the promotion of ICC’s dispute resolution services and the development of the more than 10,000-member network. Open to those aged 40 years or under, YAF enables young professionals to acquire new skills, proficiency and knowledge, including a better understanding of ICC’s arbitral procedure and other leading dispute resolution services.
Ms. Sahab advises on disputes in litigation and arbitration in commercial, construction and civil matters. She has advised clients in relation to US, UAE and KSA court proceedings, and international arbitration proceedings administered under different arbitration rules, including UNCITRAL, DIAC, ICC and LCIA.
“We are delighted that Dara has been selected for this role by the YAF,” said Stephen Anway, partner and global co-chair of the International Dispute Resolution Practice. “Dara’s appointment not only underlines her achievements in the field of international arbitration, but also the depth of experience within our global practice, with our lawyers regularly called upon to serve on important industry committees.”
