Launched in 2005, Fichte & Co has become one of the UAE’s leading law firms, with offices in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Driven by passion, professionalism, and a team of over 25 dedicated local and international lawyers and counsel, Fichte & Co is a force to be reckoned with and the ‘go-to’ firm for legal advice and business support. Landmark cases include being the first law firm to successfully enforce an International Arbitration Award in the UAE Courts under the NY Convention.
At Fichte & Co, we strive to keep our clients’ interests at the forefront of everything we do, and have listened and evolved to meet their needs. We owe our success to our reputation as a firm which knows how to get things done, on time and on budget. Our local know-how and network is unparalleled and, combined with our personal touch and professional ethos, this consistently ensures the best results for our clients. We are proud to say that Fichte & Co is large enough to matter but small enough to care.
We regularly advise international corporations on commercial law issues and risk advisory matters, including strategic advice on business risks.
Our clients have included governmental and quasi-governmental entities such as ADNOC, Oman and Dubai Drydocks, UAE Classification (Tasneef) and the Port of Fujairah. As a pioneering law firm, we aim to shape the region’s legal landscape and regulation – we are founding members of the UAE Maritime Law Committee (which is set to become a member of the Comité Maritime International), chair the Dubai Maritime Advisory Council (DMAC), and a have a seat on the DIFC Rules Subcommittee.
When it comes to dispute resolution, we strongly believe that litigation before any court or tribunal should be the ultima ratio, and that clients’ interests are best served if we can avoid costly and lengthy trials. Our international team of legal experts is highly experienced in alternative forms of dispute resolution and arbitration, and understand that solving matters amicably not only saves clients’ time and resources, but also increases the chance of maintaining commercial relationships between parties.
