ThinkHouse Dubai COVID-19 webinar

29 April 2020

The uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 poses many challenges to normal business practices. Gowling WLG's Dubai and UK team hosted a webinar to address the emerging legal issues from a UK and UAE perspective.



An upheaval in carrying out business has been experienced and is likely to continue for a protracted timeframe. Businesses operating in the UAE, and wider region should be focusing on some key considerations in response to the drastic change of circumstances. The slides below provide an outline of the topics we believe are crucial at this time:

  • The approach in the UK to contractual disputes and the applicability of Force Majeure and the Doctrine of Frustration;
  • The approach to Force Majeure in the UAE;
  • Governance considerations during a period of uncertainty; and
  • Employment issues arising from the latest regulations.
