Al Tamimi & Company, which 'has a very dedicated team that pulls all extra efforts into reaching the desired objectives and adds value through technical knowledge', handles all manner of commercial litigation from offices in several Emirates. Zafer Oghli, who leads the firm's team in Sharjah, represented Dana Gas in the Sharjah elements of its well-known and high-profile global dispute in which it sought to annul a sukuk, alleging that it was in violation of UAE public policy and Shari'ah principles. In the Dubai office, Naief Yahia acted for Ahli United Bank in foreclosure proceedings, securing the sale of 29 plots of land for a total of AED320m. Senior partner Essam Al Tamimi is also involved in shareholder litigation, among other matters. Regional litigation co-heads Hassan Arab and Hussein Eisa Shiri are other notable names in the Dubai office. Mohamed Al Marzouqi heads the firm's litigation team in Abu Dhabi, and represented Al Dar Properties in a case concerning the collapse of a two-year-old building, securing a judgment against the main contractor and consultant for AED 195m. Ayen Biar (who is 'excellent in terms of communication, evaluation of issues and implementing strategy') in Abu Dhabi and Hussain Abdel Ghaffar in Dubai, both qualified in Sudan, are notable senior associates. Tarek Shrayh is now a partner at Fletcher Day in London.
