Financial Institutions

The Finance lawyers at Habib Al Mulla and Partners have been helping the UAE modernise its finance regulations for decades.

The UAE’s robust financial sector has been instrumental in helping the country develop the most diversified economy in the Middle East and MENA. Primarily spurred by financial law modernization and the creation of financial free zones such as the DIFC and ADGM, the UAE is emerging as the region’s financial industry powerhouse. Meanwhile, federal, local, and free zone governments and regulators continue modernising the finance sector’s regulatory regime to enhance its compatibility with global finance and ensure it successfully supports the country’s other economic interests. Financial institutions conducting business in the UAE face a multi-jurisdictional regulatory regime that is continuing to evolve. This makes it imperative that financial companies secure the best legal counsel and representation possible.

The finance lawyers at Habib Al Mulla and Partners have been helping the UAE modernise its finance regulations for decades. In addition to drafting and advising on legislation, the firm played a primary role in crafting the regulatory framework that created the DIFC, the country’s first financial free zone. Our in-depth work helping modernise the UAE’s financial regulations makes the firm uniquely qualified to deliver clients the most knowledgeable legal advice and representation possible, covering all elements of the financial sector in the UAE and beyond.

Our history talks more than just words

The firm’s success is partly driven by its decades-long work helping the UAE modernise their laws to make them more compatible with international business and enhance participation in the global economy. In addition to drafting legislation and serving in an advisory role on regulatory development, Dr. Al Mulla and the firm were instrumental in developing the legal framework for the UAE’s first financial free zone, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
