The Oath GC Talk webinar series: COVID-19 & Dispute Resolution – 10 June 2020

OGH Legal is delighted to be hosting the next session of The Oath GC Talk webinar series on 10 June.

Businesses across the UAE are facing-up to the unprecedented challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this webinar, OGH Legal’s Mohamed ElGhatit will discuss two topics that, although essential, have been slightly overlooked in terms of coverage in the current crisis. The first is Statutes of Limitations (prescription periods) on claims, and the second is the Principle of Change of Circumstance. Creditors as well as debtors will learn about these two topics and how these can be utilised in their respective contractual positions. The session will include the following:

  • File before time expires: the registration of new claims;
  • Review your right or debt: the various prescription periods in UAE civil law and commercial codes as well as mandatory procedural time limits in UAE law; and
  • Impossibility vs. hardship: how change of circumstance defence could be easier to rely on.

Join us for the session on June 10, 2020 from 3pm to 4pm (UAE time). Register at
