The UAE Legal Guide – Book Launch Event


8:30 am - 11:00 am

Capital Club, DIFC -Dubai



From time to time lawyers, investors and CEOs are given responsibility for operations in the jurisdictions they are unfamiliar with. Whether they have recently joined a company with interests in a new jurisdiction, they are now overseeing an unfamiliar region or have recently gained clients with interests in such a location. The guide is considered as a well-structured reference to learn the key differences between both new and current legal systems.

This book provides an overview of the UAE’s legal system, main UAE laws, and the UAE courts system.


Lexis Middle East Law is your single point of access to the laws of the Gulf region in English and Arabic, as well as practical guidance, legal commentary, cases and news from across the Middle East.
Combining the global expertise of LexisNexis and the regional experience of SADER Legal Publishing, the Lexis Middle East Law service is the definitive research tool for both lawyers in practice and in-house in the Middle East.


Fichte & Co is working on establishing a series of book to bring the clarity and transparency to the UAE Legal system in all aspects of law, which will help in developing the legal industry. These aspects are “Labor law, Criminal law, Maritime law & Corporate law”

The guide will help the legal community in the UAE and it can become a study material for mandatory CLPD courses

Targeted Readers

The UAE Legal Guide targets all expat lawyers who are currently working in the UAE and/or new lawyers joining any UAE based law firm from CEOs, Managing Directors, investors and in-house lawyers who need a basic understanding of the UAE legal system.
