Dubai International Financial Centre
Our Dubai International Financial Centre (‘DIFC’) practice is acknowledged as a market leader.
We have a dedicated team which advises on all aspects relating to the DIFC including the set-up and operation of funds, financial institutions and companies in the DIFC. We advise on the authorisation of activities in the DIFC, regulatory approval from the Dubai Financial Services Authority (‘DFSA’), the operation of and participation on NASDAQ Dubai and all regulatory compliance issues. We have represented clients in relation to investigations by the DFSA and advised in relation to enforcement action taken by the DFSA.
Our team leads the field in advising parties during DFSA investigations and where necessary, negotiating settlements on their behalf. Our practice was instructed by the first authorised firm to be fined by the DFSA and has since gone on to advise in connection with the majority of all DFSA investigations resulting in a public outcome.
