HFW in the Middle East
The firm's Dubai office opened in 2006 and has grown significantly over the years.
Now with 13 partners, 1 legal director and 26 associates, the office offers both GCC clients and international clients with operations in the region an integrated service covering dispute resolution, transactions and regulation across a number of industry sectors. Our team of lawyers, many of whom are Arabic speakers, come from diverse backgrounds and have a strong understanding of and established working relationships with government departments, regulatory bodies, agencies and locally qualified lawyers throughout the GCC region. Our experience shows that this facilitates the faster resolution of any difficulties our clients face.
In particular, the Dubai office has a recognised reputation throughout the region for the following:
- Corporate and commercial
- Insurance and reinsurance
- International trade
- Projects and infrastructure
- Real estate
- Ship finance
- Shipping litigation
Recognising the importance of the Middle East region to international trade, we have invested significantly in growing our geographical presence across the region and in expanding our capabilities in order to continue providing our local, regional and international clients with the level of in-depth local knowledge coupled with leading legal advice that they expect of us. In addition to Dubai, the firm now has three other offices across the Middle East: Riyadh (in association within association with Mohammad Al Khiliwi), Kuwait City (in association with Rula Dajani Law Office) and Abu Dhabi. We also have a formal association with Salem Al Maddfa Advocates and Legal Consultants, which enables us to manage local litigation in the UAE Courts. Our lawyers work together seamlessly across the region.
As part of our commitment to servicing the Middle Eastern re/insurance market, HFW has launched an interactive map which provides guidance on local insurance and reinsurance law and claims handling considerations for underwriters, claims handlers and their representatives who have business in the GCC.
