The social and economic progress witnessed in Qatar, similar to other countries in the world, has led to the emergence of commercial transactions that were not previously known, thus the need for establishing specialist commercial courts to address commercial cases in a fast and efficient manner has become crucial.

Indubitably, the question is no longer whether the establishment of such courts is needed; the discussion now is about the mechanisms that shall be adopted in order to establish these courts, in line with the existing legislative and judicial structure in the State of Qatar to avoid introducing radical amendments thereto, particularly to the judicial authority law.

The present study will highlight the mechanism of composition of commercial courts and the determination of jurisdictions and procedures thereof, within an analytical study benchmarking the experiences of a number of countries around the world. In conclusion, the study will propose the most important recommendations for the establishment of specialist commercial courts in the State of Qatar.
