On 21 December 2016, Coun. Mahmoud Fahmy delivered a lecture entitled “Challenging the Court of Appeal Decisions related to the Setting Aside of Arbitral Awards: Is it Possible?” In a methodological approach, Coun. Fahmy explored all three juristic opinions rendered in answering this important question. He ended up endorsing the stance of banning the challenge of the Court of Appeal Decisions related to the setting-aside of arbitral awards. To end up the juristic controversy in this concern, the lecturer suggested a legislative revision of article 54 of the Egyptian Arbitration Law no 27/1994.
Coun. Fahmy is Former Vice-President of the Council of State; Former Chairman of the Capital Market & Investment Authorities; Attorney at Law & Legal Advisor.
