The UAE is a land of countless business opportunities and challenges. So, how best to go about venturing in the UAE? 

In this video, Karl Khoury, attorney and director of SRDB Law Firm Ltd – ADGM in UAE shares a couple of practical tips with those who want to seize those opportunities while mitigating risks.

Tip 1: Keep pace with the UAE and the region

The UAE is developing at a fast pace and the regulatory landscape is no exception, as the country strives to become a leading regional and international financial center. Keeping up with the new laws and regulations is of essence.

Tip 2: Keep an open mind

The challenge for lawyers is also to keep pace with the fast-changing UAE regulatory landscape as to understand the philosophy underlying these changes. 

This is where having a foot on the ground, with lawyers fluent in the UAE’s and the region’s legal systems, languages and cultures, is a great advantage.
