DLA Piper is one of very few international firms in the UAE which boasts a dedicated, integrated UAE Court litigation practice through our exclusive relationship with DHA Law, a fully-fledged litigation and onshore firm represented by Ahmed Ramadan and Halima Al Marzouqi, two senior Emirati lawyers. This ensures that there is no duplication of work and offers us the ability to deliver clients a seamless service to international standards at no additional cost.
Our highly experienced team has handled thousands of cases (including, civil, commercial, employment, rent, real-estate, IP infringement, enforcement of bank securities in the context of loan agreements, etc.) at all levels of the UAE Court system. In contrast to many other international firms in the UAE which claim to offer onshore litigation services, our lawyers handle and control every aspect of the litigation process before the UAE onshore courts, from advising on strategy to drafting pleadings. Through DHA Law, we also maintain an indirect right of audience before the local courts.
Our ability to manage the onshore litigation process from start to finish ensures that we can offer clients a unique blend of local know-how combined with the level of service and client delivery that is expected from an international law firm.
