Court of Appeal

The DIFC Court of Appeal is the highest court in the DIFC legal framework. This is an appellate court where parties can appeal against the decisions of the lower courts. The court also provides the interpretation of any DIFC laws article upon request by DIFC’s bodies.

Courts Of The Future

This court division only hears technically complex cases. Specialist judges evaluate cases against industry-specific rules to fast-track dispute resolution. For instance, the court will hear cases regarding engineering or claims arising from damage caused by a fire in the construction sector.

Similarly, technology-related offences could include liability against cybercrime incidents, data breaches, data misuse and issues related to introducing new technology. Tech lab and space-related issues come under the umbrella of Courts of the Future.

Digital Economy Court

DIFC Courts have also set up a special court to look into disputes originating from the digital economy. It looks into local and international disputes related to current and emerging technologies. This could include big data, blockchain, cloud services, 3D printing and robotics.

Arbitration Division

Another important service rendered by the DIFC Courts is Arbitration Division, particularly for entities in the MENA region. Adopting common law principles in their proceedings, these courts employ judges specialised in international arbitration to deal with:

Implementation Of DIFC Court Judgements
