The first Law Update of 2024 is here, and our first focus of the year spotlights Healthcare and Lifesciences, a sector that is undergoing significant growth and development across the MENA region.
Our focus provides an insight into some of the most important regulatory updates across the region, such as the UAE’s groundbreaking law on the use of human genome, Kuwait’s resolution on nuclear and radioactive materials, the new regulations for healthcare services in Qatar, Egypt’s healthcare regulatory framework, and the impact of the Saudi Civil Transactions Law on the healthcare and life sciences sector … and there is so much more!
Beyond the healthcare pages our lawyers share with you multi-sector insights where you will discover articles on Dubai’s DIFC regulatory framework for startups, Bahrain’s commercial agencies law, and we also shed light on Kuwaiti civil code and the advantages of setting up a joint stock company in Saudi Arabia.Read the full edition
Due to the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID- 19), the DIFC Wills Service Centre we will not be accepting any appointments at their offices from Wednesday 18th of March 2020 until 26th April 2020 (or until further notice and subject to change depending on any Government directives issued).
The DIFC Wills Service Centre are currently working on a virtual registration system which they hope to launch before the end of next week. Al Tamimi & Company’s Private Client Services lawyers are keeping a close eye on this and will update our clients as and when we have more information.
In the meantime, we are strongly encouraging our clients to consider their legacy planning and get in touch with us to prepare their wills and have everything ready for when the DIFC Wills Service Centre launches their virtual registration system. Times like these are a good opportunity to take stock, consider loved ones and plan for yours and their future.
Please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and available options, both in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
