There have been significant legislative changes introduced in 2021 that will directly impact the manner in which companies can continue to operate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) beginning January 2022. Sweeping changes to both the criminal and civil laws require immediate compliance by companies. Our team will explain how you may be affected.
Our team will address the most significant changes in our 2022 UAE Legal Update Lunchtime Series. Our event will be a series of four one-hour lunch time sessions each Tuesday for four consecutive weeks.
Our UAE team will outline and discuss the most important legal changes in employment, immigration, intellectual property, data protection, white collar crime and cyber crime, anti money laundering (AML) and corruption, civil procedure, and company laws. These sessions are being offered virtually and you are welcome to participate in all four or sign up for any of the webinars.
For more information, please contact Nida Piracha.
This session will provide an overview of the key developments impacting companies after the introduction of UAE’s New Labour and Immigration Law. Our team will highlight those changes that require immediate action by companies, and those changes that have to be implemented over the next 12 months.
This session will consider the immediate changes companies need to be aware of to comply with UAE’s new Data Privacy legislation, and updates to the UAE’s existing Copyright and Trademarks legislation. Our UK team will provide an overview of the UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation for those companies with GDPR compliance issues.
This session will outline recent amendments in the UAE to the Civil Procedure and Company Law. The session will focus on the fundamental amendments to the applicable law, address repealed legislation and consider the effects such changes will have on operations throughout the UAE.
With the introduction of substantial amendments to the Penal Code, along with the introduction of additional anti-money laundering legislation and cyber crime laws, this session will outline those changes companies must be aware of in order to comply.
