Our Values and Vision
TWS Legal Consultants is a law firm with a difference. All businesses state they put their clients first and provide an inspiring workplace. But many cannot back this up with evidence.
Many of our clients have been with us since we first opened our doors over 10 years ago in 2009. We are constantly recommended by clients and fellow professionals in the UAE, UK, internationally and are proud to say that most of our work comes from word of mouth.
Our vision is to continue to provide peace of mind and legal protection to individuals, families, and businesses. We achieve this through our strong set of values and strengths which are deeply entrenched in our firm’s culture.
100% commitment to a matter
We don’t give up until we achieve our clients’ desired results. Everyone who instructs us can be confident that they are getting the best of our knowledge and expertise, every day. We know that legal advice is an investment in time and money – so we ensure that none of these two vital resources are wasted.
Our lawyers always look for ways they can add extra value for their clients. This is why we are repeatedly recommended. Because we take the time to get to know everyone who instructs us, we take pride in all our client meetings. If there are new developments in UAE law, we will ensure our clients benefit from them. We will ask lots of questions when advising and drafting a Will, Settlement Agreement or a Contract, because we are driven to ensure all aspects of a clients’ needs are covered – even ones they may not be aware of.
Honesty, transparency, and confidentiality
The relationship between lawyer and client is based on honesty and confidentiality. Our invoicing is fully transparent – we never include charges on an invoice that have not been fully agreed in advance. Wherever possible, you will know how much our fees are before we commence work. Furthermore, our lawyers are fully registered by the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Dubai Legal Affairs Department.
Many of our clients are high-net-worth and/or well-known and trust us with their legal affairs. This is because we honor their need for privacy and anonymity.
We are dedicated to getting to know our clients personal and/or business. This is so we can provide creative, bespoke solutions and legal advice that fit their needs. ‘Off the shelf’ answers don’t exist in our business – we respect the fact that every person, family, and company is unique.
Kindness and compassion
The first quality we look for in our team members are kindness and compassion – qualities that are often underrated in business but provide the backbone of success to organizations who value them. All our clients are treated with the same curtesy, respect, and professionalism. Our workplace is happy, with every employee valued for the unique way they contribute to our achievements.
We punch well above our weight for a boutique firm in this region. Our size allows us to be flexible and agile when needed and provide a level of personal service that can be lacking in larger legal practices.
We are approved and licensed by the Government of Dubai Legal Affairs Department and the Dubai Ruler's Court. We are members of The Society of Will Writers UK and our lawyers are full members of The Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP), the worldwide professional association for practitioners dealing with family inheritance and succession planning. In addition, our lawyers are members of Resolution in the UK committed to their Code of Practice in family matters.
