IN THE DUBAI INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL CENTRE COURTS

REGISTRAR’S DIRECTION NO. 2 OF 2013

Issuing and Conducting Proceedings

Citation

This Registrar’s Direction will come into effect on the date of signature. It may be cited as Registrar’s Direction 2 of 2013 – DIFC Courts’ Issuing and Conducting Proceedings – and may be abbreviated to RD 2/2013.

Entry into the DIFC Courts’ Register of Legal Practitioners is governed by Article 12 of the DIFC Court (Interim Arrangements) Order No.1 of 2005 and the Notes for Guidance of Applicants.

The Register of Legal Practitioners is in two Parts:

Part I. Law firms only.

Part II. Individual with rights of audience before the DIFC Courts.

 

Entry in Part I is in the name of a firm and the firm provides a list of practitioners employed by the firm who are authorised to issue and conduct proceedings on behalf of the firm.

Issuing and conducting proceedings involve practical steps which progress a case. Thus, only practitioners who are authorised by their firm (and listed as such under Part I) can issue and conduct proceedings by inter alia (a) signing Statements of Truth; (b) corresponding with the Registry regarding a case or the progression of a case; and (c) corresponding with opposing lawyers.

Secretaries, court clerks and other individuals from a firm registered in Part I, who are not themselves authorised to issue and conduct proceedings in the name of the firm, may transmit documents to the DIFC Courts and that transmission (whether by email or delivering to the Registry) is not to be treated as issuing or conducting proceedings for the purposes of the Register of Legal Practitioners.

Mark Beer
Registrar of the DIFC Courts
