The UAE has become a regional centre for many businesses focused on technology, media and telecommunications (TMT), a position that has been accelerated through the emergence of free zone hubs and special economic zones in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and other Emirates.
Hadef & Partners provides clients with wide-ranging service in this dynamic and rapidly changing area of the law. We advise suppliers, operators and customers across all forms of supplier agreements, technology agreements, service contracts, outsourcings and licences.
We provide experienced advice on the TMT aspects associated with mergers, acquisitions, disposals, commercial transactions, regulatory considerations, e-commerce and data privacy. In the event that a dispute arises, we work closely with our Dispute Resolution team to ensure that our clients' objectives are achieved.
We play an active role in keeping our clients informed of their rights and obligations and identifying new operational opportunities that may arise due to the many changes taking place in this area.
We regularly advise on, prepare and negotiate the full range of IT and media agreements involving transactions in the UAE and its various free zones.
Our services include:
- software development contracts
- software and hardware licensing
- supplier and end user agreements
- internet development, hosting and co-location agreements
