Jurisdiction of the DIFC Courts:
While compliance with Article 5 (2) of Law No. 12 (as amended), is ultimately a matter of interpretation by the Courts in an actual hearing, the Registry will accept Claim Forms filed by the Parties which rely on Article 5 (2) to invoke the jurisdiction of the DIFC Courts if accompanied by submission agreements in one of the forms set out below, without prejudice to any subsequent challenge that may be made to that jurisdiction on the ground that the submission relied on does not satisfy the requirements of Article 5 (2) . Alternative forms of submission agreements will also be accepted if the Registry considers that such agreements prima facie comply with the requirements of Article 5 (2).
