Noted Gonzalez, who is fluent in Arabic and has worked on matters in the Middle East, "Our ability to provide clients seamless representation, from starting or growing their physical presence in Dubai and throughout the MENA region, to quickly and efficiently resolving business related disputes within the DIFC's world-class facilities, made our decision to stay and grow in Dubai simple."

As the leading business hub in the United Arab Emirates, DIFC supports economic development in the region by providing the needed legal and business services, as well as physical infrastructure. "It is considered a global gateway for finance, capital and investment," added Sangar.
