Arab Law

Arab Law is part of a very diverse and complex legal system practiced currently in 25 countries. The Arab Law system in the Gulf Cooperation Council, includes Qatar, the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The Arab Law and its culture

A genuine appreciation and understanding of the Arab Culture and traditions is part of Del Canto Chambers’ identity. As a consequence, we have facilitated the forging of strong alliances between GCC, Europe and Latin America –particularly in Spain and England.

We believe in cultural immersion as the prerequisite to develop strong partnerships in the Arab world. Understanding local and regional business practices, the tax & legal issues and the regulatory practices takes years and requires local expertise.

Many international companies fail to understand the richness and depth of the Arab business culture.

The GCC economy relies on a strong legal system, most of it translated to english. It is based on Sharia with a foundation on common and continental law and Arabic is fundamental to interpret it.

“A tribute to their blood it is, That the Andalusians, even today, Are effable and warm‐hearted, Ingenuous and bright of countenance.”
