Shalakany Successfully Defends a Leading Hotel Operator in a Dispute before Egyptian Courts
The case was filed at court in October 2022. Shalakany managed to secure a favorable decision from court in November 2022 confirming the inadmissibility of the case. The court accepted Shalakany’s arguments and analysis concerning the survival of an arbitration clause that was embedded in a different agreement between the disputing parties and its extension to the relevant hotel management agreement pursuant to which the dispute was pursued by opposing party.
The Shalakany team handling this matter is comprised of Muhammad Ussama (Partner) and Mohamed El Zohery (Associate).
Muhammad Ussama (Partner) said: “It is always great to be able to secure a quick win for a client. This is especially so when a dispute is heard before courts. We have had to argue technical legal issues relating to the survival of arbitration clauses and the extension of their scope to other agreements between the same contracting parties to reach this outcome. We are very pleased that courts are becoming noticeably more efficient when dealing with this kind of arguments and disputes.”
