Disputes are unfortunate yet inevitable features that considerably impact personal and commercial life. One must always handle such scenarios with the utmost gravity.

BBA is familiar with the litigation environment and guarantees that its Clients, both domestic and international, are regularly appraised of any relevant legislation that might impact their business and legal actions. 

Our litigation department is skilled and staffed with lawyers who have rights of audience in all Emirates, yet understand trends in the Middle East and the wider region. 

We provide legal advice and practical assistance to our Clients throughout all stages of potential litigation by well-drafted legal pleadings and vigorous representation in Court. 

As such processes can be protracted, we approach disputes with recommendations that economise Clients’ time and costs through preliminary alternative mechanisms like negotiation and mediation. 

Where litigation is inevitable, we go all the way, representing international and domestic Clients before all courts and special tribunals in the UAE; we also assist our Clients abroad through our selected partners.
