The firm: One of the only UAE law firms to have a dedicated representative London office, ADG Legal (ADG) is a full-service Emirati firm, headquartered in Dubai. It also has an office in Alexandria, Egypt.

The firm then combines in-depth local knowledge with international expertise and provides responsive and bespoke legal services and strategic advice both directly to its own clients and to foreign law firms.
Established following the 2017 merger of Mohammed Al Dahbashi Advocates and Kingsgrove Partners, the firm is proud of its experienced and diverse team (including Emirati, British, Egyptian, Australian, Sudanese, and Kazakhstan members).
ADG’s aim is to continue to develop and connect exceptional local and international legal talent for the benefit of the region and beyond. Local and international clients as well as foreign law firms regularly commend ADG for its responsive, clear and commercial advice

The firm’s Dispute Resolution Team is committed to resolving disputes (regional and international) in the most efficient and practical manner. The firm’s advocates have full rights of audience before all UAE courts (including the DIFC Court), free zone authorities and tribunals. Many of the firm’s lawyers have vast experience in dispute resolution beyond the UAE. The firm has also built up a network of leading firms and individuals in numerous other jurisdictions, enabling ADG to provide a seamless dispute resolution service for all clients, regardless of jurisdiction.

ADG’s lawyers have vast experience relating to construction and infrastructure projects across multiple jurisdictions, including the UAE, DIFC, MENA region, Europe and East Africa.
