The development of Dubai and all of the UAE in recent years has made it necessary to develop an important network of law firms affiliated with International Lawyers Associates. Newspapers around the world and the internet have often addressed the controversy surrounding the escape of persons condemned by European criminal justice to these countries, who are often eminent personalities in the world of economics and international politics. The coordinator of international legal affairs, attorney Alexandro Maria Tirelli, has been involved in some international events related to the extradition of famous politicians and drug traffickers who found refuge in the Arabian Peninsula.
From a political point of view, the United Arab Emirates (in Arabic دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة, Dawlat al-Imārāt al-‘Arabiyya al-Muttaḥida, the “United Arab Emirates State”) is a state in the southeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula. The Arab nation consists of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaima, Sharja, and Umm al-Qaywayn. Before 1971, they were known as the Trucial States. International Lawyers is present in each of these locations.
Dubai and the UAE can boast one of the lowest endogenous crime rates in the world, and this is a source of pride for the Sheikhs. Crimes or fraud in the markets that cause harm to foreign tourists are rarely seen. Our law firm is mostly occupied with immigrants (Indians, Pakistanis, Filipinos) involved in occasional crimes: involuntary manslaughter involving the road, injuries, and crimes against property and people.
Nonetheless, our lawyers have quite recently defended subjects who imported drugs from South America, as the great phenomenon of international drug trafficking is already significantly involving the wealthiest Arab countries, despite the severe punishment for those who are found responsible for these crimes. International economic crime is also an extremely important subject in our law firm.
In the UAE, judges can also establish perpetual expulsion from the country instead of sentencing the guilty to time in prison. Pre-trial detention is quite lengthy in police stations, and only after a long period of time are detainees transferred to state prisons.
The UAE was formed by a group of sheikhs from the Arabian Peninsula. On November 2, 2004, the first president, Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, died. His oldest son, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan, was elected by the Supreme Council. Regardless, its largely modernized legal system cannot be compared to law in the West. In its practice, the attorneys at International Lawyers Associates dedicate the utmost attention to the legal system by constantly maintaining contact with consulates to monitor compliance with dignified detention conditions and court proceedings.
Oil is the main source of economic activity in the United Arab Emirates and is the key component of their GDP.
Oil was discovered in Abu Dhabi in 1958 and in Dubai in 1966. Revenues literally caused the nation to explode with an incredible economic boom, such that Dubai is universally known as the “New York City of the Persian Gulf”.
In Dubai, three palm-shaped islands and peninsulas are being completed (the Palm Islands: “The Palm Deira”, “The Palm Jumeirah”, already created, and “The Palm Jebel Ali”): a sort of scaled representation of the globe made up of an incredible number of artificial islands (The World), which aspire to be a “rich multi-million tourist colony”. For these reasons, International Lawyers also provides its maximum aid in international mediation and in respecting anti-money laundering rules for international clients worldwide.
