•    ADR

The traditional litigation process culminating in a trial is an important means of resolving disputes and, for many cases, may be the appropriate alternative. At Petra we know that in other cases, however, litigation may be less desirable because of the cost, delay, publicity, and lack of control over the outcome. Petra Alternative Dispute Resolution team is especially skilled at achieving favorable outcomes for our clients who would be better served if their case were resolved outside the courtroom. Petra is considered one of the finest law firms regarding ADR. It has expertise in Arbitration, Mediation, Negotiation and Online Dispute Resolution, as we are involved in a number of cases inside the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and practicing arbitration in well-known centers namely ICC, DIAC, AAA and UNDPR.

We have a team uniquely qualified for the most demanding assignments, national and international in this respect.

Our practice encompasses contractual advice (before project commencement and thereafter) as well as all types of construction and technology related dispute resolution by means of Court proceedings Arbitrations, Adjudication and Mediation. Our Partners are often serving as Arbitrators or as Counsel in different contraction disputes.



•    Corporate Governance:

We counsel clients in establishing guidelines, safeguards and compliance programs for effective corporate governance. To help them start the compliance process with the goal of achieving the "best practices" standard, PETRALIP has developed a Corporate Governance Service includes establishing:

-    A complete set of corporate governance guidelines for adoption;
-    Board of director evaluation surveys;
-    Precedents or "working models" of mandates and charters for boards of directors, the board Chair, principal board committees and the CEO;
-    Precedents for key company policies, including an Insider Trading Policy, Code of Business Conduct and Disclosure Policy.


The Corporate Governance service is provided as a single service, priced according to each client’s requirements for assistance with tailoring and other variables. In this respect, PETRALIP has been awarded a World Bank project to conduct an assessment on corporate governance in Jordan which has been accomplished successfully.



•    Environment

Jordan was one of the few countries in the region which enacted its own Environmental Law in 1992, a legislation which was based on the National Environment Strategy published in August 1991, which was stemmed from then the latest development in the environmental trends and legislation.  One of our Off-Counsel is not only academically qualified in environmental law, he is well versed and experienced in drafting and analyzing such legal tools, regionally and internationally.

We provide legal counsel and representation on a wide array of international trade issues, trade policy, trade dispute resolution, trade remedy procedures, and technical analyses of developments in international economic areas. Our location between Europe, North Africa, Middle-East and the  rest of Asia and the Far East influenced our trend to carefully study and analyze the economic and legal aspects and subsequent changes thereat, as they ultimately influence the economies in many countries in the region.

Though the legal doctrine prevailing in this region i.e. North Africa and the Middle-East is based on Civil Law applications, other schools of law also have their influence thereat due to the adoption of international rules and concepts or the Common Law applications.  Such an environment makes ideal for our Counsel to utilize the services at their best, as the high qualifications and the wide range of experience would enable them to tackle corporate and individual disputes prudently regardless to the nationality involved, the law applicable to the disputes, or the nature of such disputes.

We also handle all formalities needed to register maritime vessels locally and regionally.
