Compliance and Regulatory

As emerging and advanced economics continue to diversity and innovate, the need for transparency and cross-border transactions continue to increase. Such evolution has given rise to an increased need for regulatory and compliance requirements.

The team at Galadari have been advising the Government of the UAE and associated regulatory authorities in respect of drafting and implementing essential legislation, along with addressing the direct requirements of such public-sector bodies by commenting on new and reformed legislation for over a decade.

In alignment with the global market, the need for data and online privacy continues to remain as a boardroom focus. Our lawyers have extensive experience advising our clients to ensure they remain compliant with local and global data and privacy legislation, whilst advising them on mitigating strategies.

Our lawyers work closely with regulators and the National Anti-Money Laundering Committee to ensure our clients are aware of the essential elements and that establishing is completed in compliance with the law and Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). Furthermore, we work with local regulatory bodies and corporate clients to ensure compliance with corruption and bribery legislation.

Our established market reputation has driven banks, financial institutions and other organisations to work with the Galadari team, where we have advised on complex and diverse matters which include mergers and acquisitions, sales, banking regulations, securities law compliance, bank and financial holding company matters and general corporate counseling.

Following the implementation of Value-Added-Tax (VAT) across the GCC in 2019, we have been advising our clients on the effective registration, payment and compliance of the tax, along with addressing any legal complications which have arisen.

Our team provide a comprehensive range of solutions which include:
