Weekly Spotlight: DIFC Courts have launched a specialist division for Technology and Construction (TCD)
This week the spotlight is on developments in the DIFC, where the Dubai International Financial Centre Courts have announced they have launched a specialist division for the region’s technology and construction companies to resolve their most complex commercial disputes. The Technology and Construction Division (TCD) draws on specialist judges and industry-specific rules to fast-track dispute resolution in technically complex cases like complicated engineering disputes or claims arising out of fires. Parties anywhere in the world will be able to opt-in to the Courts’ jurisdiction, if both parties agree in writing. Requests to have claims heard by the Division are made as part of the initial filing, with the Courts’ decision based on the written evidence provided. It will be headed by Justice Sir Richard Field.
