Home 9 Capabilities 9 Multi-Jurisdiction Disputes

Overview

We frequently represent clients facing multiple, related legal proceedings in several jurisdictions. In these situations, coordination and consistency of strategy are essential – and so is the ability to understand and manage the complex procedural issues that arise from the multiple, potentially different laws and rules that may apply. We pursue and defend various parallel legal proceedings, including arbitrations, national court lawsuits and international court proceedings.

Our Services

At each stage of the process—communicating with administrators, selecting arbitrators, providing arbitrators with guidance for the creation of effective procedural orders and establishing a timetable, setting and participating in hearings, and creating a roadmap for the final award—we make the process efficient and streamlined.

  • Challenges to arbitral awards.
  • Challenges to court proceedings in support of arbitration agreements.
  • Enforcement of arbitral awards.
  • Injunctions in support of arbitration.
  • Preparation of arbitral agreements.
  • Representation in arbitral proceedings.

Enforcement and Ratification

We assist us in expeditiously enforcing local and foreign arbitration awards before the UAE Courts.  We assist our clients in all aspects of the post-award phase, including in settlement negotiations, global asset tracing and enforcement and set-aside proceedings.

Urgent Orders, Injunctions

Besides representation in arbitration, we act in associated court proceedings, including injunctions, protective orders and interim awards.

An injunction is a court order requiring a party to do or preventing a party from certain action. We have represented clients in obtaining these orders and in resisting them

Shareholder Litigation

Shareholders disputes can range from breach of shareholders agreement and articles of association to shareholder grievances for shareholding dilution, exclusion from management and similar “oppressions”. Some of the matters in which we have represented minority shareholders are:

  • deadlocks,
  • allotment of shares for an improper purpose,  suppression of the rights of minority owners,
  • breaches of contract and fiduciary duty
  • Derivative actions;
  • unfair prejudice claims;
  • court-ordered buyouts of minority shares and valuation disputes
  • statutory petitions for just and equitable winding up

Our thinking

“In the corporate world predictability is prized, mistakes tolerated, and surprises abhorred”
Henry W. Ewalt, Andrew W. Ewalt

We are a dynamic law firm that believes that lawyers can transcend to a more universal humanistic role. We work as collaborators, trusted counsel, and partners.

We believe, that no matter the venture, transaction or dispute, legal advice benefits every modern-day scenario.

The purpose of our existence is repositioning lawyers from silo advisors of law to being integral advisors towards the attainment of the clients' corporate, social and economic goals.
