In the UAE, will, trust, and estate disputes are intricately woven into the region's legal fabric, shaped by its unique legal framework and cultural ethos. The country’s legal system incorporates elements of Sharia law alongside civil and common law principles, which leads to intricate legal scenarios in the realm of inheritance and estate distribution.

To address these challenges, expert legal counsel can help ease the complexities of estate planning, ensuring the legality of wills and trusts, and effective management of any arising disputes.

Family Office
A Family Office is a privately held entity that provides sophisticated wealth and investment management services tailored to high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth families. In the UAE, the legal and regulatory landscape for setting up Family Offices is well-defined, with specific regulations in place within prominent free zones such as ADGM, DIFC, and DMCC. Each of these jurisdictions has tailored its regulations to address aspects like the definition of family members, minimum capital requirements, and compliance and reporting duties. Importantly, these zones offer significant fiscal benefits, as they do not levy corporate income or capital gains taxes on Family Offices. Additionally, they permit these offices to deliver a broad range of services, from asset and wealth management to the day-to-day management of accounting and legal affairs.

Our firm provides expert guidance and support to executors and beneficiaries, streamlining the administration of estates and ensuring the efficient distribution of assets in accordance with the law.
