Company Formation

The firm has a dedicated team of lawyers and experts who deal with company incorporations and assist in securing necessary corporate services for our clients.
Once a client decides on the form of a structure (company, proprietorship, partnership, single person company etc.) best suited to his/her new venture, or that his/her business-idea is ready to take the step up from, say, an existing partnership/proprietorship into a company, the requirements of an experienced practitioner are required to ensure due incorporation of the desired business entity. 
We have incorporated various forms of companies spread across various geographical areas including multiple start-ups at the Free zones and on the mainland in the UAE.

1.2.1 Free Zone Companies and Establishments
In incorporating a Free Zone company/establishment, we provide comprehensive services and undertake all aspects of the incorporation on behalf of our clients, ranging from the initial advice, to preparing business plans, applying for visas, securing premises, obtaining the trade license and ongoing matters, such as:
maintaining required statutory 
registered office;
company secretarial services;
filling renewals; and
Bank account establishments.
The firm’s practice in this regard involves the following jurisdictions.
All free zones in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah, whether industry specific free zones and general free zones.
UAE offers a wide choice of over 30 free zones most of which are industry specific and others are general free zones.
Amongst the GCC, the UAE has taken the lead in developing Free Zones and has been remarkably successful in attracting foreign investment. In fact, nearly all new foreign investment in the United Arab Emirates gravitates to the Free Zones.
The proliferation of Free Zones in the United Arab Emirates witnesses the emergence of two parallel, yet distinct and divergent business environments. The "onshore" (the rest of the UAE) environment remains subject to national laws and regulations regarding foreign ownership; whereas the Free Zones, or the "offshore" environment, offers complete freedom of ownership to foreign investors.
