Managing a Company in Dubai

It’s well known that Dubai is an important business center, most of its company owners being foreigners. Due to its extravagant wealth and flourishing economy, company management in Dubai claims some important principles, focusing on the internal relationships within the company. 

Foreign investors must know that requesting the help and services of a specialized law firm with experience when they manage a company in Dubaiis vital.

Our Dubai attorneys can come up with legal assistance in every step of company development, from setting up the business to managing taxation matters or, most important, establishing successful relationships between company management, employees and business partners. 

Company management rules in Dubai

Several laws in Dubai regulate company management in Dubai, such as the Corporate Governance Rules and Company Act. Shareholders have the duty to appoint one or more directors who will manage the company. Consequently, since the limited liability company is one of the most common types of structures in Dubai, foreign entrepreneurs should know that they are responsible for appointing the manager(s) and the board of directors (that will form the management of the company). After that, during a general assembly of shareholders, company managers will be chosen. 

According to Commercial Law, a supervisory board must be established in the case of limited liability companies having more than 7 shareholders. Directors and managers of Dubai companies have certain rights and responsibilities towards the company, the shareholders, employees and third parties they do business with.

On the other hand, a company’s management will be held liable for actions such as fraud, abuse of power and infringement of the provisions of the company’s statutory documents.
