Welcome to our free industry leading guide on the Qatar International Court. This comprehensive guide is written by one of the few law firms with genuine expertise in legal claims in the QICDRC and will answer any questions you might have about legal claims in Qatar.

Francis Wilks & Jones solicitors are one of the leading experts in the Qatar International Court. Whether you are an individual, company or other legal entity, we can help deal with any type of legal claim in the QICDRC. We also bring a multidisciplinary approach to our work, allowing us to create the right team for you whatever your claim.

  • Maria Koureas-Jones is the partner who heads up this team and regularly acts on claims in the QIC. Her most recent and notable success is successfully opposing a permission to appeal application by our client’s opponent.
  • Dan Tominey is a solicitor at Francis Wilks & Jones with experience in QIC claims. Dan works closely with Maria and is an excellent member of our Qatar legal team.
  • Thomas Williams is a barrister with a long relationship with Francis Wilks & Jones. Thomas spent many years working in Qatar and is very well known within the Qatar International Court. Thomas is our preferred barrister in these types of cases, bringing with him a wealth of experience in Qatar based claims.

In addition to the above experts, we have access to a range of other experts with experience in Qatar, including for example, corporate, insolvency and restructuring experts.

This means that we can always put together the right team for you – and maximise the chances of a successful outcome.

The team at FWJ were excellent. Even when I was on the back foot they provided reassurance and always looked at all the issues with diligence and explored all the angles. They made you feel as if you were their only client (not always the case with many legal firms). I would thoroughly recommend Francis Wilks & Jones.
