Afridi & Angell’s Dispute Resolution practice is unrivalled.

We regularly advise on complex construction, real estate, employment, financial services regulation as well as general contractual disputes and maritime issues. Our Dispute Resolution team is one of the most successful teams in the region. We appear directly in arbitration and in the DIFC courts and instruct UAE counsel for matters in the UAE courts. Our presence in the UAE for over 35 years has resulted in very close working relationships with UAE advocates and, in litigation matters, this aids the essential roles of instructing and supervising UAE counsel.
