Real Estate

The growing interest of regional and global players to invest in UAE real estate market has encouraged the legislator to pass the laws and regulations in this sector at a pace which is unprecedented.

Keeping up with the real estate laws and regulations can be challenging to everyone be it investors, developers or the contractors. The challenge is further complicated as there are different laws for different Emirates in addition to the federal laws which is applicable to the entire UAE. The interplay between these two set of laws creates interesting situation and requires out-of-the-box thinking to craft a commercial legal solution.

The real estate sector is again in the limelight and has become an important area of work for many law firms in UAE , primarily because of growing foreign investment led by Dubai being awarded expo 2020.

Over the years, real-estate and construction has emerged as the main practice area for my team. We have top-notch experience in advising and litigating on real estate and construction laws in the UAE.

As an established local law firm my team has seen it all. From the boom before 2008 to a downturn led by collapse of Lehman brothers which had a ripple effect on Dubai’s property market.
