Dubai, UAE: Members of the public received free legal advice at a one-day, walk-in legal clinic, organised by the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai and BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP.

Answering queries on all aspects of corporate and civil laws, a team of twenty-five expert lawyers from BSA provided support and practical advice in the field of litigation, real estate, labour law, insurance and reinsurance. The team offered a total of 150 hours of free legal advice and the majority of the public’s concern was focused on corporate issues, where 40% of case enquiries ranged from insolvency issues, expired licensing and license issuance. The second most frequent concern, with 25% of enquiries, was focused on labour cases, whilst 20% were concerned about family law, and 15% of attendees sought advice on bounced cheques.    

Now into its second year, the event was held at three separate DED locations and attracted many attendees, all looking for help in navigating the legal landscape in the U.A.E.

Recognising the importance of providing sound legal advice for the community at large, the Department of Economic Development was a proud supporter of this year’s event and is looking forward to continuing the relationship in the future.

Khaled Hassan Mubasheri, Chief Executive Officer, Governance and Legislation Sector, DED, said: We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the event.  The high attendance is further proof of the need to offer high quality legal aid within the community.”

For the past two years, law firm, BSA has hosted the walk-in clinic, with the sole aim of giving something back to the community in which it has operated for the past 20 years. Dr. Ahmad Bin Hezeem, Senior Partner at BSA, said, “As a lawyer, there is something heartening and satisfying about offering free advice to regular members of the public; advice that can often be life changing. We look forward to continuing and growing the clinic year on year.”
