Former UAE Minister of Justice sets up new law firm

The former UAE Minister of Justice and former Chief Justice have joined forces along with a business mogul and a Harvard graduate to set up a new law firm focused on disputes resolution.

Bin Nakhira & Partners is a litigation practice founded by Mohammed Bin Nakhira Al-Dhaheri, former Minister of Justice and Attorney General, and Dr Abdul Wahab Abdool, former Chief Justice of the Federal Supreme Court.

The firm was co-founded by entrepreneur Ali Al-Alawi, managing partner, and Harvard graduate Mahmoud Abuwasel, partner, a statement said.

The firm said it will focus on high-stakes litigation and has been recruiting from domestic firms and making hires from top-tier UK firms.

Bin Nakhira & Partners said it assists in pre-trial, trial, and enforcement strategy, provides direct representation up to the Federal Supreme Court, advises on jurisprudence relating to complex questions of law, and assists other firms as co-counsel.
