Since the establishment of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 1971, it has rapidly grown into a modern state to become one of the Middle East's most important economic countries and financial centres. With a population of over 9 million, over 85% are ex-pats from around the world, including South East and Southern Asia, the US and the UK.

Dubai itself has demonstrated a track record of significant economic growth, attracting businesses, investors and families, due to its strong infrastructure and business environment. Withers has been working with many leading families and individuals in the UAE over the years, from our EU, Asia and US offices, and have been monitoring Dubai's ascent up the ladder of international financial centres. In 2016, we felt it was the right moment to enter the market with a tax advisory office and fill out our international network in a presence in the middle east.

Tax specialist Stijn Janssen will lead the team based in the Dubai International Financial Centre, advising high net worth families and family offices and as well as a full range of corporate tax advice.
