Company Formation & Structuring

The right company structure creates the backbone for sustainable business success. Whether onshore, offshore, or in one of the many UAE free zones, our team of legal practitioners expertly guides clients in selecting the ideal company structure and advise them on compliance.

Our legal advice on company formation starts with understanding our clients’ objectives leading to tracing a viable and compliant route to create a structure that fulfils them. Our in-depth knowledge of local regulations and the continuously changing foreign investment laws, backed by strong relationships with the authorities and government bodies, allow us to devise strategic optimal structures for our clients.

We assist our clients in establishing various types of entities across mainland and free zone jurisdictions: Limited Liability Company (LLC), branch or representative office of a foreign company, foreign investment companies, commercial agency or distributor, professional service, free zone company and offshore company.
This includes defining roles and responsibilities through Memorandum and Articles of Association, shareholder agreements and board and shareholders resolutions.

We also advise clients on restructuring of their existing entities for better operational efficiency or regulatory compliance. We suggest appropriate structures in response to government tenders and help clearly define roles in matters of shareholder responsibility.

What People Say

Testimonials

I am writing to you to thank you all for the ongoing support you have provided our family since our daughter’s accident in 2016. You have guided us through the complexities of the UAE legal system in a way that has provided us with the time and space to focus our attention on our daughter’s sub-stational and ever-increasing health and medical needs with the confidence that Lily’s legal arrangements are in safe and expert hands. Stephen Ranger, Nesreen Nabil and Zahra Petafi in particular have been very supportive and compassionate since the accident and have always provided prompt advice and support to our many queries especially since our enforced return to Australia.

Black & White Engineering is a leading MEP engineering design consultancy with a long list of top clients and prestigious projects in our portfolio.  Our engineering expertise is second to none but to remain successful and at the top our game we also need to ensure we have strong legal advice and representation when we need it.  Many of the projects we work on, along with the contractual agreements that we are part of, are highly complex so it made sense for us to seek out an expert legal provider such as Hussain Lootah & Associates who can provide us with tailor made services to suit different situations.
