Legislation and policy
Our Legislation & Policy Practice consists of lawyers who regularly contribute to the development and drafting of a significant number of laws and subsidiary legislation around the Middle East. The practice is headquartered in our Abu Dhabi office, but our coverage extends across the Middle East.
Our Legislation & Policy Practice consolidates Al Tamimi’s expertise in the areas of legislation development and drafting, public and administrative law, procurement, structuring and governance of government, public and commercial entities. Like all of the firm’s divisions, we work closely with the other practices to offer a thorough and collaborative spectrum of legal expertise.
Our team, fluent in Arabic and English, is experienced in the requirements of the public sector, including the need to produce clear and concise legislation. We understand how this legislation must fit and integrate into an existing constitutional and legislative framework.
We are regularly consulted by government entities in respect of the drafting of new laws or subsidiary legislation. This involves:
- Carrying out a gap analysis to determine what is missing or could be improved in the existing legislation
- Performing a benchmarking exercise to see what is done in other countries, determining any relevant international obligations that will need to be met
- Consulting with all stakeholders to ensure that the full spectrum of concerns are understood and dealt with
Given we are at the forefront of legislation and policy drafting, we have an unmatched understanding of the legal landscape and developments affecting the Middle East and our clients.
