Event Overview

UAE economy is set for a post-COVID transformation. The country enjoyed its highest creditworthiness rating among the region, while it witnessed the historic UAE-Israel’s Peace Agreement and the reopening of borders of GCC members. The UAE government also boosts the ease of doing business with various legal reforms. These economic pillars foster a robust rebound and enable UAE to become an attractive investment destination for global investors. 

Join us at ALB Virtual UAE In-House Legal Summit 2021 on 27 October as we discuss these robust changes, what the legal team can do to ride on the changes, manage new risks, and seize new opportunities for their business.
