UAE Real Estate Law

Arbitration and Litigation

People who have purchased off-plan freehold properties in haste often find themselves facing issues with developers, unexpected payments, delayed deliveries, and lack of progress on the project.

As professional real estate lawyers in the UAE, we can help negotiate terms with developers, speed up the settlement process, and reach amicable settlements that work in your favour. As a final step, we will also represent your case at the Dubai International Arbitration Centre or the Dubai Courts, subject to terms of contract.


The introduction of various new real estate laws in the UAE are aimed at providing clarity, transparency, and regulation within the real estate market. In Dubai, this initiative is supported by the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA).

As licensed consultants in the UAE, we handle all aspects of conveyancing including drafting contracts and agreements, negotiations, and title registrations.

We can assist clients to buy, sell, lease or transfer property, and handle all aspects of the process.
