New DIFC Courts Enforcement Department strengthens UAE?s status as global dispute resolution hub

DIFC Courts Enforcement Department, operating under the leadership of Judge Omar Al Muhairi, was launched on Tuesday to ensure the simple and speedy enforcement of orders made by both the DIFC Courts and other jurisdictions.

The DIFC Courts Enforcement Department will have two areas of responsibility. First, it will work to enforce judgements made by the DIFC?S Court of First Instance and Small Claims Tribunal both locally and internationally. Second, it will enforce the orders of other courts with regards to assets held within the DIFC.

?The creation of this department sends a very clear signal that the DIFC Courts? judgements are enforceable internationally and that we will enforce the judgements of other leading jurisdictions. This will give additional certainty to international business while also contributing to a strong and effective justice system, which is a key goal of the UAE?S 2021 Vision,? said Michael Hwang, Chief Justice of the DIFC Courts.

Overseeing the department is Judge Omar Al Muhairi, who brings over 23 years? experience working in both the Dubai Courts and DIFC Courts.
