Arbitration Lawyer in Dubai, UAE

With arbitration emerging as a preferred channel for dispute resolution, HL&A has assembled the region’s foremost team for arbitration representation.

Our support starts long before the actual arbitration process. Our teams get involved during the initial contract creation process, where we help clients decide whether arbitration is suitable as a dispute resolution mechanism. We ensure that relevant clauses within the contract construction detail the nature and location of the arbitration.

Through arbitration, we assist clients in settling complex cases without resorting to traditional litigation. By avoiding the lengthy court process, our clients can resolve their matters efficiently and quickly return to business. Our specialist practitioners have the experience necessary to provide expert representation before arbitration tribunals, including the Dubai International Arbitration Centre (DIAC) and the DIFC-LCIA Arbitration Centre.

We represent our clients through the arbitration process, serving their best interests while arguing in front of a tribunal and upon receiving an arbitration award, our litigation team will assist with ratification, recognition and enforcement of international and domestic awards.

Our thought leadership in the arbitration space amplifies our effectiveness when arguing for clients’ best interests. Our arbitration team offers extensive experience in specific industry areas – from construction, engineering and real estate to media, financial services, investments and insurance.

I would like to extend a big thanks to Mr. Lootah and his team for the wonderful support that they have not only provided my firm but also friends and colleagues of mine to whom I recommended your company.

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.
