Why should you buy Laws of the DIFC Revised Volume 1
The Laws of the DIFC, Volume 1 is the first commentary in a series commissioned by the DIFC Academy of Law on the laws of the Dubai Financial Centre - the common law freezone and financial centre in Dubai, UAE.
International interest in the DIFC, its English language laws and Courts has been developing in recent years as it is possible for entities both inside and outside the freezone to opt for their disputes to be heard there making it a convenient forum for global investors.
This book is part of a project initiated by the Chief Justice of the DIFC Courts, Dr Michael Hwang to provide easy access to explanations of the DIFC's laws and regulations and create DIFC equivalent to Halsbury's Laws.
Accredited Academy of Law Specialist firms, with significant experience of litigation and providing advice in the DIFC have been allocated to write the six titles within this volume, which cover the following topics:
- Arbitration - Clyde & Co
- Companies - Jones Day
- Damages and Remedies - Clyde & Co
- Employment - Stephenson Harwood
- Obligations - Clifford Chance
- Court - Stephen Field (Barrister and Lecturer)
As well as providing an overview of the legislation in each area, the authors offer provision by provision commentary on each article:
- highlighting both similarities and differences with the common law or equivalent international provision making it easier for those more familiar with other common law jurisdictions to quickly see where the potential legal differences apply
- providing details and explanations of important DIFC cases in the specific area giving practical advice on the likely DIFC Court treatment
- providing details and explanations of relevant cases and commentary from other common law jurisdictions (with references) which can be useful to those researching that area
