Litigation in Dubai and Abu Dhabi – It has its culture. It has its unspoken language. Anticipating the application of written law by the judges requires an understanding of the source of the legal system and its consciousness. UAE’s legal framework is a fine fabric. The law strikes the balance between modern economic socio changes in an international landscape. UAE law is applied with an embedded consciousness of the Shariah law.
Our partners are witnesses, as participants and observers, of the constant evolution of the law in the past decade.
If we compare the application of the law on a spectrum where at one end is flexibility and fairness, and the other end is a stark application of the codified words of the law, we see that the subtle difference between when a matter goes before a judge in Dubai, to when the same issue goes before the court in Abu Dhabi.
Our firm has a deep understanding of the local court system. We advise clients on trial analysis and strategies. We prove to be the bedrock with the local counsel.
