Overview

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.

Publisher:

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.

Aim

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”
