    When a disagreement arises between two or more parties due to a conflict of interest, it is called a dispute. Legal disputes cases are very common and can vary widely in nature. The most common dispute cases we handle are contractual disputes, family disputes, rental disputes, labour disputes, illegal termination, intellectual property or trademark disputes, financial disputes, etc.


    Arbitration in UAE is an alternative to litigation or the traditional courtroom process. It is conducted outside the court at designated arbitration centers. The decisions made in the arbitration center are legally binding and equivalent to a court order. Since arbitration is adversarial in nature, the outcome of the case is final; it is advisable to have an experienced arbitration lawyer by your side. The lawyer can help you find evidence and negotiate on your behalf.

    Civil laws


    In the UAE, mediation is conducted before a mediation committee. The committee tries to resolve the dispute by assisting both parties to reach a mutually aggregable solution. However, mediation is not legally binding. The parties can move to court if they disagree with the result derived through the mediation process. That is why you must hire an expert civil lawyer for mediation and negotiation. The mediation process saves time and money that you might incur in a court case.

For filing a lawsuit, plaintiffs are required to submit a ‘statement of claim’ and other supporting documents to the court. Depending on the complexity of the case, the supporting documents may increase. Our civil lawyers can assist you in preparing all kinds of documents and finish the filing process on your behalf.
