Dubai Court of Appeal finds in favour of Hong Kong shipowner

Dubai’s efforts to cement its status as a maritime hub received a fillip recently when lawyers from international practice Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) obtained a judgment ordering the recognition and enforcement of a London arbitration award in the UAE.

HFW, represented by its Dubai-based Middle East shipping team, led by partner Yaman Al Hawamdeh and Associate Anas Al Tarawneh, secured an initial judgement from the Dubai Court of Appeal that will be seen as a bellwether of the even-handedness of the Dubai courts system. The Court of Appeal judgement is currently itself under appeal, HFW said.
