Our clients include individuals, small and medium sized enterprises as well as multinational corporations. As a boutique law firm in the Middle East we provide our clients with customized and highly flexible strategies in accordance with their specific needs.

In addition to providing commercially oriented legal advice we assist our clients with regard to litigation matters in the Middle East when disputes cannot be avoided. Our experienced litigation team ensures that our clients’ rights are enforced and secured and that unjustified claims from third parties are averted.

As foreign lawyers we are not admitted to the national courts in Middle Eastern jurisdictions. In case of court-related disputes we therefore cooperate with leading local law firms. Our long-standing cooperation with these partners ensures that our clients are excellently represented in the UAE and the other Gulf states at all times.
