The logistics industry is one of the oldest in the world. Ever since man started sailing, conquering the high seas in hopes of trading goods between one another, businesses and marketplaces have flourished in the port cities. Looking ahead several centuries to the modern day, where we have established organisations that rely on computer-based technologies for everything from navigation and communications to financial and business transactions. Today, shipping and aviation play a vital role in the UAE’s economy as a strategic trade hub and home to the busiest port in the Middle East.

In order to support this massive industry, we at Fichte & Co have a team of experienced Logistics and Maritime Lawyers focused on helping our esteemed clients adapt, diversify and grow under all market conditions.
