DIFC Courts’ Connectivity & Reducing Contractual Risk

The DIFC Courts are an independent English language common law judiciary, located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and based in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). This video briefly explains the work of the Courts, why leading international law firms in the region use their services and how their role encourages investment in Dubai. The DIFC Courts’ jurisdiction governs civil and commercial disputes nationally, regionally and worldwide. The DIFC Courts are part of the sovereign structure of the UAE Emirate of Dubai and more than 500 cases have been decided since the Courts began operations in 2006. Based on international best practice, the Courts are an important resource for international businessmen seeking to resolve commercial legal disputes, as well as the enforcement of national and cross-border judicial decisions. The DIFC Courts’ official Enforcement Guide was created in 2012 to provide details on the enforcement of DIFC Courts’ judgments in Dubai, the UAE, the Middle East and across the world.
