Litigation 2.0: New Year’s (2023) Legal Update Webinar Series

Chatura Randeniya and Mevan Bandara

On 2 January 2023, three pieces of federal legislation came into effect which, if implemented as envisaged, will arguably make the most significant changes to litigation in the on-shore Dubai Courts since the UAE was established.


The three laws are:

  • Federal Decree Law 42/2022 on Civil Procedures;
  • Federal Decree Law 35/2022 on Evidence in Civil and Commercial Transactions; and
  • Federal Decree Law 34/2022 on Regulating the Advocacy and Legal Consultancy Professions.


In this webinar, partners Chatura Randeniya and Mevan Bandara discussed the significant changes introduced by these laws in onshore litigation, including:


  • Introduction of English Language Courts
  • Service of Summons
  • Jurisdiction of Court
  • Specialised Courts
  • Conduct of proceedings
  • Appeals
  • Writ of Debt/Payment Order
