Healthcare & Life Sciences

Helping develop the UAE’s top-tier healthcare and life sciences industry.

As with other sectors of the UAE economy, the healthcare and life sciences industry is rapidly growing and flourishing. The federal and local governments have publicly committed to developing world-class healthcare infrastructure backed by significant public spending in the sector. Combined with some of the highest foreign direct investment among MENA countries, the rapid modernization of the sector is helping establish the UAE as a destination for medical tourism, and it was recently ranked 20th in the World Index of Healthcare Innovation. Like in other countries, the healthcare and life sciences sector is heavily regulated, with ever-changing regulations being enacted to keep up with the fast pace of the sector’s changes. This means that companies working in the sector should always secure qualified legal counsel and representation.

The healthcare lawyers at Habib Al Mulla and Partners keep close track of the UAE’s ever-changing and multi-jurisdictional regulatory regime that oversees all elements of the healthcare and life sciences sector. Our attorneys have working experience with federal and local healthcare laws covering the full slate of healthcare and life sciences activities. We provide legal guidance and representation to local and international pharmaceutical, medical device, biotech, healthcare information, and other healthcare service companies that must resolve legal issues and conduct business in the region.

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).
