Construction

The construction industry in the UAE is one of the most demanding in the world, meaning construction disputes are one of our most frequently handled matters.

Horizons & Co boasts a compact and globally diverse team of lawyers from both civil and common law backgrounds, whose strengths lie in advising on both contentious and non-contentious matters in the MENA region. We have a comprehensive understanding of the industry, therefore we can offer clients a well-rounded service in procurement and disputes resolution. Our advisory service will draft and review standard and bespoke contracts, provide guidance on UAE local law compliance and should the need arise will represent you in court or at arbitration hearings.

Our lawyers regularly represent a client base which includes developers, contractors and state-owned entities in large-scale construction-related arbitrations and provide experience in infrastructure and construction disputes.

Our expertise cover disputes under the rules of all major arbitral institutions such as the ICC, DIAC, DIFC-LCIA and ADCCAC. Being a local firm, with local lawyers means we have a distinct advantage when it comes to construction disputes. Our lawyers know the local laws and attend court on a daily basis, we are therefore up to date with any changes and developments in the UAE law. Our construction lawyers are well regarded for their experience in enforcement and nullification proceedings before the UAE national courts.

Our construction expertise are not limited to disputes resolution, our team offer front-end services including drafting tailored FIDIC-based construction agreements, advice related to regulatory advisory matters, private equity funds, end user agreements and infrastructure agreements. We offer negotiation with various third parties, including sub-contractors.
