DIFC courts’ international standing for excellence grows

The DIFC Courts have been shortlisted by the UK’s Law Society for two prestigious Excellence Awards. This is the latest recognition of the DIFC Courts’ focus on service excellence, and follows its 2013 accolade of becoming the only court in the world to achieve the high service standards required by The International Customer Service Institute (TISSE), as well as winning the U.A.E. Customer Service Award for four consecutive years.

The DIFC Courts’ Pro Bono Programme, the first of its kind in the Middle East when it was established in 2009, has been shortlisted for the “Excellence in Pro Bono” award alongside leading international law firms and charities. For their work championing high legal standards for international commerce, the Courts are also contenders in the “Excellence in International Legal Services” category of the international awards bestowed by the body representing solicitors in England and Wales.
