United Arab Emirates Court of Cassation Judgments provides, for the first time in any language, summaries of key decisions of the Courts of Cassation (Supreme Courts) of Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates from 1989 to 1997.
These decisions concern questions of jurisdiction, conflict of laws, banking, insurance, maritime law, arbitration and commerce in general and will be of major relevance and interest to all entities (and their legal advisors) doing business in and with the United Arab Emirates. The essence of each decision is first set out in a few lines and then explained in more detail, though still in a summarized format that is readily assimilable by the businessman as well as the lawyer. The book does much to reveal the workings, attitudes and jurisprudence of the United Arab Emirates Courts, an area often of mystery to businessmen.
