The Firm

Who We Are

We are a boutique law firm born in 2002 in the United Arab Emirates, a land of multicultural, dynamic energy and progressive spirit, striving to be a leading example to the rest of the world in challenging the impossible. This is what lies in the DNA of Motei & Associates.

On a par with the UAE government’s bold, forward-looking vision, we offer the perfect blend of professionalism with a creative legal approach, flexibility, and more importantly, open-ended, responsive attorney-client communication.

What has made us successful, is our deep understanding of the traditions of the land and the unique complexities and challenges faced by living in a country with multiple legal systems. We bring forward this on-ground knowledge to deliver not just a traditional legal expertise but a personalized, well-rounded, commercially sound advice that will lead to our client’s success.

Our Culture & Values

Our culture and values are at the core of who we are and what make us a unique firm to work with. We make a difference by being approachable, straightforward, responsive and supportive. We deeply value the relationships we build with our clients and we know that they value our warm, friendly human approach.

Pro Bono Services

Motei & Associates is one among the few law firms in the UAE who answer the call of pro bono legal aid. Our team of lawyers and legal consultants are filled with a drive to aid those who need legal assistance the most. By devoting our time to the financially disadvantaged, we seek to fight for their rights and ensure that a remedy is provided for their problems. Our team has successfully assisted many pro bono clients in the past and seek to help many more in future in order to provide a rewarding experience for all.

Online Lawyer

Our clients usually reach out to us in times of emergency. Recognizing the need for immediate assistance, we have implemented an easy do-it-yourself online scheduling system allowing clients the freedom to arrange their own appointments with full access to a booking calendar.

Easy & Secure Payment

Our client-first culture has motivated us to introduce an easy and convenient electronic payment system. Clients get their invoices via email and pay online with a debit or credit card via secure payment gateway. It’s yet another way that we are using personalized technology and swift response to revolutionise the legal industry in the UAE.

Global Reach

We are able to meet our clients’ international legal needs through our network of law firms, operating in most of the jurisdictions around the world. Our professional partnership with these selected law firms arises out of relationships that have been developed over two decades of practice in the UAE. We select the right local partner-firm for the matter at hand, whilst retaining full responsibility of the quality of work provided to our clients and ensuring a specialized advice by the right legal specialist.

We are pleased to announce the establishment of our professional collaborations  with Slotine Hong Kong Law Firm, and Judicare Group - UK.
