I have recently won a very stressful rental scam from rental company Saltbox in liaison with a long term stay hotel, 2seasons hotel & apartments thanks to the help of Motei & Associates. The case was complex in nature however this law firm represented me fully & advised well me throughout the legal jargon of Dubai’s Rental Dispute Court procedures. Straight away I was referred to the companies Head of Litigation: Remon Sabet. Hopefully this case is now fully settled but the Law firm continues to follow up after our win and charges a fee at the start of the for the full case-there are no hidden costs. These lawyers are highly respectable and professional in protecting their clients. Thank you so much!

We are a Korean firm based in Seoul. With my personal on hand experience, I would like to recommend Motei for any commercial litigation or dispute in UAE. They, including were very thorough, sincere and trustworthy to engage a legal case in UAE. Due to Islamic Law society, people in Western World can face a serious hurdle or obstacle taking a legal case there. However, UAE Law system is fair and just as long as backed up by proper legal advice and action in due course. We pursued a bad debt collection case against UAE local company after we engaged Motei. We won the case and Motei collected not only Principal amount of bad debt but also judicially applicable interest. Bravo Motei. Thanks millions to Mr. Motei and Mr. Mena Victor!

On both occasions Motei have been very approachable and professional and have taken the time to understand my requirements. They have a good knowledge of U.A.E. business laws and have been able to provide excellent advice on each occasion. I have no hesitation to recommend Motei & Associates.

I needed to recoup a large amount of money I invested in an off-plan apartment in a development in RAK. The builders were a few years late in delivering the apartment which prompted me to look for my money back. I spoke to many law firms in Dubai. A positive result was far from a foregone conclusion, but Ashraf and his team were very thorough in their work, and they kept me informed and updated throughout the three-year process. We recently received a full refund plus penalties, and I have no doubt that this was due to the diligence of Ashraf and his team. I know of other investors in the same project who have used other firms who have had negative or less favourable results. Following my experience, I highly recommend Motei and associates.

Motei & Associated represented me in a real estate dispute against a renowned developer in Dubai that blocked the handover of my property for unjustified/false claim for late penalty fees. With the help of Mr. Ashraf El Motei, I finally received my property without making any payment. I find Mr. El Motei and his team exceptionally good, responsive and well informed to give the right advice. I highly recommend them for any legal assistance in Dubai.

I must say that Motei & Associates have been extremely patient and kind with me. I am a type that never has a time or is always busy makes the least work to gain the most and some how a difficult person to deal with. So having said that Motei and Associates bore with me and step by step with kindness and professionalism did all things necessary to take care of my company. All I can say is to thank them immensely for what they have done. I look forward to work with them as long as I am having a company in Dubai.

After purchasing a property off plan in Dubai during 2005, I paid stage payments with no construction work having begun onsite by the 2017 completion date stated. After 10 years of a rollercoaster litigation ride, I contacted Motei with very little hope. Ashraf’s pragmatic overview of my case & his resolute belief that he could succeed where others had tried & failed was the “positive reinforcement” I had been waiting for. The team worked tirelessly on resolving my case. Ashraf ‘s astute perceptiveness & patience successfully led 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!

Responsiveness” is what we at INDEX Holding value the most about Motei. I had the privilege to work closely on the incorporation of an offshore company, a tedious and time-consuming work. They were extremely competent at carrying out the task presented, and took a great deal of personal interest in ensuring that I was advised on all matters promptly. All follow-up matters requiring attention were handled professionally and courteously. The Firm demonstrated a 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.

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.

From 2010 to 2016, Motei represented my wife and I in an action to recover monies invested in a failed development - La Hoya Bay, Al Marjan Island. We eventually received back all of our investment. I would like to commend Ashraf and his firm for their handling of the case on our behalf. We were resident in the UK throughout the action and were totally in their hands. Ashraf expertly guided us through the process. In order to extract our investment, Ashraf used his legal skills, tact, and diplomacy. Thankfully we received the funds into our UK account a few days ago. If I were to need the services of a lawyer in the UAE again I would definitely make Motei & Associates my first port of call, and I can happily recommend others to do the same.

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Ashraf El Motei and his team for finally being able to win our case after an 8 year fight against a UAE developer. After the final award, we were not able to receive our money back and we were skeptical when Ashraf ‎advised us to keep fighting and to go for an appeal. Following his advice was the best decision I ever made. Finally after several years we got all our money back. Ashraf El Motei and his team did a great Job, and they supported ‎ us till the last moment. I would recommend “Motei and Associates” to anyone who needs legal representation in the UAE and I'm sure they will be satisfied at the end as we are.

Motei has been working tirelessly with us on a real estate case since 2010. We have finally obtained a court verdict in our favor when most claimed that one could not win against big developers. This is in thanks to Mr. Ashraf and his team, who continued to fight for our case and to constantly seek new avenues to protect and prove our legal rights. Moreover, both Mr. Ashraf and his lawyers were always available and at the ready, whether to answer questions, listen to our concerns, or to explain procedures and timelines. This kind of relationship is priceless and was present with everyone at the firm. We would highly recommend Motei and Associates and look forward to working with them in the future should the need arise.

I had a dream of living on La Hoya Bay with my small family. In 2008, I invested my entire saving into a 30% down payment there. After all our attempts to reach settlement with the developer proved fruitless, I met Ashraf El Motei. We had a 5 years long journey. Many times, I doubted the out-come. I began to realize that our investment was gone. Suddenly, one day, I got an email from Ashraf with an image of my cheque. Is it true? I could not believe it! I was giving up, but Ashraf never did. From day 1, he had demonstrated great dedication and understanding not only to our case but to our frustration, being simple people who only wanted to pursue their dream. I only can thank him for his tireless effort to secure the future of my family.

We employed the services of Motei for over two years. While dealings with the law and legal firms, is never uncomplicated for outsiders, during this period we have forged a relationship that has transcended the norm. Ashraf and his team have smoothed the way forward and given every impression that winning the cases, we have been involved with, was personal to them, not simply business. In legal terms, they have gone into battle with us and their guidance, advice and leadership has proven invaluable as we have traversed the dizzying myriad of avenues that is the law and the courts system. If the situation arises, I would have no hesitation in using Motei and Associates and Associates again in the future.

Our results have been successful so far and look forward to the return of our claimed investment money. Throughout the process any costs have been transparent and explained fully at all stages.

We have been privileged to be represented in our case by Ashraf El Motei. The charging basis has been fair and always transparent; invoices have always been completely in line with the estimates. Through attention to detail, preparation, and dogged determination Motei achieved an award of full refund in our favour.
