Just as the UAE has grown and developed since its formation in 1971, so have we.
From 1980, when Dr. Hadef Al Dhahiri, the current UAE Minister of Justice, founded the firm, we have developed into a leading commercial law practice.
Dr. Faraj Ahnish, Managing Partner of the firm, was instrumental in transforming Hadef & Partners from a boutique practice to a full service business law firm during the past two decades. Under the leadership of Dr. Ahnish, assisted by Sadiq Jafar, Managing Partner of the Dubai office, and the other partners, lawyers and staff, we place the highest emphasis on quality and integrity, and ensure that the firm operates to international standards.
Many of our lawyers are Western educated and have practised in a variety of Western as well as Middle Eastern jurisdictions. English, Arabic and most other leading business languages are spoken by members of our team.
Regional and international businesses and governmental organisations value our commercial acumen and our approachable manner. Our objective is to be a trusted advisor and a law firm of choice.
