Testimonials | Family Lawyers in Dubai | Advocate in Dubai

After purchasing a property off plan in Dubai during 2005, just like many foreign overseas investors, I found myself in the untenable position of having paid stage payments to a local Developer as stipulated in the original Sales Purchase Agreement (SPA) but with no evidence of construction work having begun onsite by the 2007 property completion date stated in the original SPA, I embarked on what would prove to become a very lengthy 10 year “rollercoaster ride of litigation”.

Initially utilising the services of a UK Solicitor, approaching Dubai International Arbitration Center (DIAC) myself, after receiving poor legal advice that it would be difficult to bring a case against the Developer on clauses contained within my property SPA. Engaging a local Dubai Solicitor, whom despite winning my enforcement case & successfully defending an appeal by the Developer through Dubai Cassation Court to overturn the enforcement order granted on my DIAC award, finally informed myself that there was “no possibility” that I would ever be able to enforce the DIAC award & collect any money from the Developer due to the developing company having no legal assets.?!!

Contacting “Motei & Associates” offices in early 2016 with very little hope of being able to collect the hard fought DIAC award, “even though I had successfully defended the award through the entire Dubai Court legal process over the past 5 years” I met with Ashraf El Motei at his Dubai office. Ashraf’s pragmatic overview of my case & his resolute belief that he & his team could succeed where others had tried & failed was the “positive reinforcement” I had been waiting so long to hear to resolve what had become a “nightmare litigation journey” with a subplot worthy of any farcical sitcom!

Ashraf & his team worked tirelessly on resolving my arbitration enforcement case, providing accurate updates throughout every stage of the process with Ashraf ‘s astute perceptiveness & patience proving pivotal to successfully enforcing my DIAC award through the Dubai Court process to a positive conclusion in October 2017 for which I will be eternally grateful.

Motei & Associates corporate ethics, unwavering professionalism & honesty puts them top of my list for legal representation globally! Thank you All so much for your hard work.

"Responsiveness” is what we at INDEX Holding value the most about Motei & Associates and of course there’s so much more to their service as a law firm. I had the privilege to work closely with one of their Associate – Ms. Zina Adjal on the incorporation of an offshore company, a tedious and time-consuming work. Zina was extremely competent at carrying out the task with which she was presented, and took a great deal of care and personal interest in ensuring that I was advised on all matters promptly. In addition, all follow-up matters requiring attention were handled professionally and courteously by Zina and her team. As such she proved an indispensable asset and clearly demonstrates the Firm deep understanding of our business. Motei & Associates is “Proficient, accurate, professional advice in which you can have complete assurance” and with this experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services and certainly would recommend Motei & Associates.

Back in 2008 we invested in a development in the land of Ras Al Khaimah. Unfortunately we were informed by the developer that there were some ongoing problems and so we were forced to take legal action.

The way that the UAE legal system works is a long, grueling and expensive process. However with the help of Ashraf and his team we managed to get our £40,000 back which we thought was lost forever. After this hanging over our heads for almost 10 years we finally got the resolution we wanted.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for us. I would 100% recommend Motei Associates.
