The Afridi & Angell real estate team’s in-depth understanding of the legal and business environments in the UAE and the region, combined with its strong relationships with government authorities, enables it to provide commercially astute and trusted advice to clients.

The team regularly represents master developers, sub-developers, property owners, architects, engineers, contractors and government entities in all stages of the real estate and construction processes. The team has a wealth of experience in advising on purchase and sale transactions, hotel management structuring and transactions, leasing, jointly owned property strategies and documentation, and related court cases and arbitrations.

Afridi & Angell successfully led a lawyer’s group consisting of real estate partners from major law firms with offices in the UAE in negotiating with the Dubai government to establish the legal opinion precedent to be used with respect to the newly introduced jointly owned property law’s mandatory regulatory filing requirements of Jointly Owned Property Declarations. This was a first in Dubai – setting the market standard.

We also represent clients in contentious matters involving concessions, constructions contracts, contractual payment claims, and commercial agencies.
