International Law and Conflict of Laws
Law tends to be organised on a national basis. However, some crime, such as money laundering, is perpetrated across national borders. Indeed, the international element of the crime contributes to its success. Moreover, human trafficking, marriage related issues, human right abuses, sharia backed laws etc, creates intricate problems for businesses and individuals to deal with in UAE. Introduction of DIFC which allows businesses or persons to practice their operations under Common Law has opened up the need to have a law firm at one’s disposal which could deal with matters both under Sharia law and Common law. Usually conflicts arise in UAE by virtue of 2 different jurisdictions functioning in this part of the world. UAE has just recently signed the charter of Human Rights and major compliance issues with sharia law has arisen, in the wake of such discrepancies a firm that specialises in both the international laws- such as international water treaties- and conflict of law is a bonus to have at one’s disposal.
In times when the international bodies are having to co-operate with one another in order to control financial crimes, Human right abuses, Child custody matters, Divorce and its financial/legal ramifications, tarrifs and trading laws of respective countries, deportation, assylms, criminal exchange treaties between countries etc, which involves cross national and multiple jurisdictions. Hence we at Ibrahim khouri specialise at dealing with such dichotomies in different jurisdictions.
