Areas of Practice

Energy, Mining & Infrastructure

We’ve supported this sector and advised the government on its regulatory oversight since 1984.

The energy sector has long been the primary driver of the UAE’s economy, with the country having the world’s sixth-largest oil and seventh-largest natural gas reserves. Meanwhile, the mining industry has emerged as a fast-growing contributor to the economy, with copper, gypsum, precious stones, and other minerals and metals extracted with the most advanced technologies. The infrastructure supporting these sectors is modern, technologically advanced, and fully capable of handling the region’s continuing growth of energy and mining activities.

The lawyers of Habib Al Mulla and Partners have advised and represented clients working in these sectors since the firm’s founding in 1984. Our lawyers’ intimate familiarity with laws regulating these industries is supported in part by the firm’s involvement in helping the government revise and draft relevant regulations. This makes Habib Al Mulla & Partners uniquely positioned to advise and represent local and international clients with all legal issues relating to the energy, mining, and infrastructure sectors.
