Law firm, BSA, in partnership with Dubai DED, will offer free legal advice to the public for one day only, in fields including litigation, real estate, employment and corporate matters.
The Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai and BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP, one of the region’s leading legal service providers, will organise a free legal clinic to offer help and advice on navigating law related matters in the U.A.E. The open, walk-in clinic will take place at three separate locations on Monday, 15th October 2018, from 9am – 3pm.
Expert lawyers from BSA Ahmad Bin Hezeem & Associates LLP will be on hand for one-to-one consultations on legal matters covering a wide range of areas including (but not limited to); real estate, construction, employment, compensation claims, criminal matters, debt recovery, tenancy disputes, inheritance and family queries.
Khaled Hassan Mubasheri, Chief Executive Officer, Governance and Legislation Sector, DED, said: “We are delighted to be supporting BSA’s worthy initiative by hosting the clinics at three of our key locations in Dubai. At the Department of Economic Development, we recognise the importance of sound legal advice for those in need and feel that the community at large will benefit greatly from such a resource.”
Dr. Ahmad Bin Hezeem, Senior Partner at BSA, said: “We are well aware that not everybody has the financial means to consult a lawyer, nor do they have the knowledge on how to address these issues. Access to high-quality legal aid can prove costly and is often an impossibility for the average Dubai resident. After two decades operating in the region, the legal clinic is our way to give back to the community, by offering help and support in what we do best.”
Returning for a second year, BSA held its first free legal clinic in 2017, and chose to expand the locations due the volume of demand they experienced during the inaugural year. The three separate locations are: Tas’heel in Oud Maitha and Al Twar Center, Deira in Dubai Municipality’s building as well as the DED Head Office in Deira. With 25 highly experienced lawyers ready to provide free legal information and advice to all those who attend on the day, BSA is encouraging visitors to arrive early with all relevant paperwork at hand. The clinic is informal, with no need to book an appointment, however the service will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
On the subject of BSA’s new collaboration with DED, Dr. Ahmad Bin Hezeem concluded: “Following the success of last year’s legal clinic, we are very proud to be partnering with DED to broaden our offering and bring this initiative to three different venues across Dubai. With the new partnership in place, we look forward to developing BSA’s series of free legal clinics, and repeating this initiative on a regular basis.”
