The friction came to a head last year when the government created a Joint Judicial Committee (JJC) to decide on potential conflicts of jurisdiction between the onshore Dubai courts and the increasingly busy courts in the offshore Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC). The JJC’s ability to stay proceedings at the DIFC Courts, renowned for their investor-friendly environment, sent shockwaves through the legal community based in the Gulf’s commercial hub."
