Our Team - Fichte & Co

Our Team has around a century of combined experience in advising and assisting clients.

Our team comprises of dual qualified lawyers, Arabic lawyers and Emirati lawyers. Our foreign lawyers work closely with the Emirati lawyers especially on litigation cases, which offer the client a clear understanding of the applicable UAE Law and overcome the language barriers.This is particularly attractive to local clients as none of the international law firms based in UAE can offer direct representation in local courts.
