The Dubai International Financial Centre unveiled a three-year plan that outlines an ambitious drive for full digital transformation through advanced technologies to increase the efficiency of dispute resolution.
The DIFC will launch a “Will Deposit Centre” along with a Digital Will Management System and advanced CRM, besides offering multi-lingual consultancy services in line with the DIFC Courts Strategic Work Plan 2022-24, which was approved by Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance and President of the DIFC.
As per the plan, Dubai is setting up an international digital economy court to expedite resolution of disputes related to emerging technologies, the DIFC said on Sunday.
In line with the three-year plan, a new hyper-connected judicial network will also be developed alongside cutting-edge legal procedures for enhanced accessibility to court services, according to the DIFC.
Sheikh Maktoum pointed out that the DIFC Courts has strived to set industry firsts, offering a distinctively international and experienced court service proposition, able to deal with the most complex transnational disputes. “The maturity of its service mandate and the rapid pace at which this service efficiency has evolved, highlights the integral role the DIFC Courts has in supporting Dubai and the DIFC’s status as a global business hub by engendering trust, confidence, and protecting business continuity.”
“Today, we approved the new Strategic Work Plan to further instill confidence that the DIFC Courts will forge ahead to shape the new dynamics of global dispute resolution. The Strategic Work Plan was built to actively support DIFC strategic objectives and to launch a new era of legal technological infrastructure that meet current requirements,” said Sheikh Maktoum.
