The topic of civil law is concerned with the civil rights and legal dealings between private individuals and their counterparts. This also includes disputes between individuals and organizations. It is a distinctly separate area of expertise from criminal law, which focuses on criminal offences, such as road offences, theft, or assault. Typically, civil law has interests in areas such as landlords and tenancy agreements, debt collection, contracts, or organizational negligence.

In Dubai and the wider UAE, civil law is enacted at the federal level. However, laws also vary between each of the emirates. These devolved powers mean civil laws vary somewhat depending on location. Different cities and areas in the country require a slightly different approach and area of expertise.

At Abdulla Alsuwaidi Advocates, our clients benefit from our great experience of dealing across the whole of the UAE. Our friendly, efficient civil lawyers are well-versed in all aspects of civil law. Combined with our multi-disciplined team of civil attorneys, we are dedicated to providing the best legal advice in the Dubai area.
