Doing business with family can get tricky. We understand that better than anyone else. Which is why our specialist Family Business practice is the market leader in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). We build legal structures and put in place binding agreements which defend family assets from both external and internal risks; and we formulate and record agreements which pave the way for seamless succession and sound stewardship for families in business.

Our team can:

  • Structure businesses and investments to reduce and manage legal risks and exposures
  • Create bespoke structures to insulate families against business disruption at times of transition
  • Develop family agreements and trust deeds which permit clear and structured transitions to future stewardship
  • Create frameworks for resolving issues and differences, without damaging the fabric of family life
  • Formulate clear pathways to succession and stewardship under both Sharia and common law inheritance rules.
  • Prepare wills for non-Muslims made under the jurisdiction of the Dubai International Financial Centre; and also prepare wills for expatriate nationals effective under regional legal systems.
