United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the strongest and most diversified economies in the Middle East. In addition to traditional strengths in power/infrastructure, construction and real estate, tourism and hospitality, consumer products and finance, the UAE has become a hub for other sectors such as healthcare, lifesciences, TMC and education. More recently, signs of venture capital activity point towards a healthy, multi-faceted economy maturing nicely in time for Expo2020.

Recognising this, CMS Dubai offers corporate and commercial legal advice to businesses of any size, from large multinationals to high potential SMEs across all these sectors. We also assist clients to avoid, settle or arbitrate/litigate disputes when things go wrong.
