UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a major commercial centre providing access to emerging and developed markets in the MENA region. In response to depressed oil prices, the UAE is taking significant steps to diversify its economy through investment in innovation and new sector development. As a central hub for trade, logistics and tourism, Dubai, in particular, acts as the nexus for much of the regional market activity. GLS Law Firm features a core team of senior lawyers in the UAE, who work closely with our network of lawyers in Singapore, the UK and around the world. Our UAE practice group represents clients on a broad spectrum of international corporate and commercial transactions, dispute management and international arbitration matters across various business sectors including TMT, real estate, project development and private funds.

Our legal team is comprised of senior lawyers formerly from the world’s best law firms, as well as general counsels from some of the largest multinational companies operating in UAE. This breadth and depth of experience ensures that we always provide unique perspectives and effective solutions to service the needs of all clients, regardless of size. GLS Law firm is also conversant with the legal culture, regulatory regimes and generally how business is conducted across the UAE and the MENA region, ensuring that we provide effective counsel to issues that confront our clients. Our lawyers are fluent in many languages, ranging from English to French to Arabic, allowing us to communicate effectively with our clients, regardless of their origins.
