Saudi Arabia’s Shoura Council has approved a draft Commercial Courts Law and their procedures. Under the law, if approved commercial departments will be established in public courts in all areas and provinces which don’t have commercial courts. Appeals against decisions issued by these courts will be before the appeal courts located in the nearest commercial court until a commercial court is established in the same area. The law is aimed at reducing litigation time and giving lawyers and other relevant parties’ bigger roles. It also aims to provide an environment for commercial cases which understands commercial conventions and conditions.
