DLA Piper is one of the few international firms in the region with the ability to represent clients in local courts in the Middle East, enabling our Arabic and English speaking lawyers to offer a seamless service to our clients.

Navigating the local litigation system across the plethora of courts in the UAE can be a complex process, and to effectively manage the process requires local advocates who understand international best practice. Our firm combines international best practice, with in-depth understanding of the workings of the court system on a local level. 

We offer a service to regional and international clients involved in regional litigation which is unique to international firms in the region, namely a regional Arabic court litigation team. We have upwards of 30 lawyers who specialize in local litigation throughout our offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Jeddah, Cairo and Kuwait (through our joint venture partner). We have rights of audience in a number of these jurisdictions.
