UAE Dispute Resolution Guide

The last decade has been transformative for the dispute resolution landscape in the UAE. The key business centres that are Dubai and Abu Dhabi have made, and continue to make, convincing moves towards their development as robust jurisdictions in which parties can effectively resolve their commercial disputes.

Advising clients on all aspects of investment and risk across the Middle East countries for over 40 years, Hogan Lovells has acquired significant experience across all sectors and industries that are active in the region. We have consistently provided our clients with expert advice and practical guidance to help steer them through the region’s dispute resolution landscape. This includes the establishment of "offshore" court systems and a recently enacted new arbitration law.

In line with our vision to be bold and distinctive and to create valuable solutions for our clients, we capture our significant experience and extensive knowledge of the UAE’s approach to dispute resolution in our UAE Dispute Resolution Guide. We hope this Guide provides a useful starting point to understand UAE's dispute resolution landscape.
