Our firm has pleading privileges before all courts in the UAE, including the UAE Federal Court, the Dubai Court of Cassation, the DIFC courts, DIAC and the other arbitral bodies, and administrative committees in all fields of law, including the portions of Islamic Sharia enforced in U.A.E.
Our services begin before the case is filed, with pre-litigation consultation. Court cases are long and costly endeavors that should not be initiated lightly. With both a wide wealth of experience from the lawyers in our firm, and extensive records of applicable court rulings, our firm is well- qualified to analyze a dispute and advise the client of the case’s validity. In many situations, an accurate analysis of the case’s chances, its costs, and the timeline involved is the most valuable service a client can receive.
We also engage in negotiation, mediation, and settlement discussions, often resolving the dispute to both parties’ satisfaction without the need for a court case.
However, when a matter cannot be resolved without a trial, we are well-prepared to both prosecute and defend. Our litigation team has won impressive victories in a broad range of substantive areas of law and industry, before both courts and arbitrations. We regularly represent clients in arbitration, including DIAC, ICC, and DIFC-LCIA, and successfully enforce arbitral awards.
