Construction forms an integral part of the economy and development of most countries and the UAE is no exception. The number of construction projects has increased substantially in the Gulf over the last decade and the UAE in particular has witnessed a phenomenal construction boom. As a consequence, focus on construction law in the UAE is more intense than ever.
