After several years of active involvement in the Dubai market, Curtis opened its Dubai law office in 2008. The office is licensed in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), where it is now located.
The Dubai office, along with our other Middle East office in Muscat, is active in advising the firm's clients on a wide variety of matters in the United Arab Emirates and the region, including real estate development, tourism and hospitality projects, energy and infrastructure projects, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and private equity transactions, general corporate and commercial matters, and matters involving sovereign wealth and private equity funds. Curtis also advises on dispute resolution matters, and won the first judgment handed down by the DIFC courts in 2007.
The Dubai office has developed particular capabilities in matters involving the DIFC and the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA). We have assisted the firm's clients in numerous activities involving the DIFC and its laws and institutions, including capital markets and securities offerings, company law issues, real estate and property development projects, and dispute resolution matters in both the DIFC's arbitration centre and court system.
The Dubai office also is involved in a wide variety of projects and matters for the firm's public and private sector clients in other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, as well as in the wider Middle East and Central Asia regions. The lawyers in Dubai typically work in cooperation with lawyers from the firm's offices in the U.S., Europe, Middle East and Central Asia to ensure complete legal coverage in multi jurisdictional transactions. Such matters recently have involved private equity funds and projects in the energy sector.
The Dubai office is a branch of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, a New York limited liability partnership.
