In the UAE, plenty type of law firms exists. Some law firms have advocates and legal consultants that are best with their style. If the firm has advocacy and legal consultancy license that means they have both Arabic lawyers and local advocates. Such type of license allows the advocates to appear in the criminal investigation and criminal cases. Not much law firms in Dubai are having such type of license as you may find law firms in Dubai and Abu Dhabi having the license of legal consultancy only. Such kind of license would not allow working lawyers to appear in the court. However, they still give them the right to appear in DIFC Courts. It is important to note that it is not possible to find criminal lawyers and legal consultant firm itself doesn’t have the right to appear in criminal court or criminal cases.
The client can easily find out if the law firm has the right for court audience or not or if they have criminal lawyers or not or can appear in the courts or not from the trade name. If the trade name has the word advocates and legal consultancy, then they have the right for court audience. However, if the UAE law firms have the name of legal consultancy without the name of advocates that means you won’t find lawyers in their team who could attend the court audience. Such Dubai legal consultants firm have to instruct law firm or advocate in Dubai from advocates and legal consultants firms to appear on their behalf.

However, the most important thing is if you are dealing with a law firm in Dubai or lawyers in Dubai you have to make sure that the legal affairs department is the authority who issued their license. It is illegal by Dubai laws to practice law without having approval from these authorities. You may easily know if the law firm is licensed from offshore or free zone if you check the extension of the name. You may find it if you search for the word FZE in the extension of the name that could mean that company licenses issued from one of the free zones.
