Corporate Structuring

Evolution of Corporate Structuring

The potential to use innovative corporate structuring techniques to further protect the interests of local and foreign investors is a specific practice area which has evolved significantly over the past decade, due to the licensing and structuring restrictions applicable under relevant UAE laws and regulations as well as their practical application.

We have been at the forefront of the market in our understanding of the relevant legislation and its practical interpretation by the relevant governmental officials and legal departments, to ensure that we can devise and implement optimal structures for our clients.

We have managed to work with the relevant licensing authorities to accept our various corporate structures on the principle that such structures are devised with the objective of attracting and facilitating foreign investment into the country.

Our objective is to allow our clients to focus on their business and have a corporate structure that they know is robust and flexible enough for their short, medium and long term objectives.
