We know owning a property provides great security for the future, but it’s not without its risks and responsibilities. From arranging legal documents, handling property disputes, transferring land titles to even buying and selling property, there are many stages of the process that can only be handled by a professional property lawyer.
If you’re new to the property market or just not sure what exactly to look for when it comes to finding the right property lawyer, we’re here to help! Below we have outlined the top property lawyers in Dubai for 2022.
Al Safar & Partners
Having been around for almost 40 years, Al Safar & Partners are widely known and respected as one of the top law firms in the city. Property or Real Estate is actually their top performing department and they’ve handled 2,600+ cases involving property in the past decade.
One of the advantages of this firm is that their team of lawyers and legal consultants comprises those who are also members of the bar in countries outside of the UAE, such as the UK and European countries. This is a huge benefit if you have or are looking to obtain property outside of the UAE as you will be able to find a lawyer who is knowledgeable in both private international law and the property laws of other countries.
Al Safar & Partners offer a free 30 minute consultation to new clients, which you won’t find in many other organisations. So if you are looking for a property lawyer in Dubai, we recommend taking advantage of this offer and consulting with one of their professionals.

HSS Lawyers is a full service law firm offering services for property, family law, labour law and corporate law. With over 30 years experience, HSS Lawyers have become one of the most trusted law firms in the UAE and have successfully handled more than 1,000 cases.
With many awards under their belt, HSS Lawyers are best known for their work on boundary disputes. The firms dispute attorneys’ cases involve the replacement or removal of boundaries, professional negligence of property solicitors, and inaccuracies in legal documents.
Plus, one of the biggest advantages to HSS Lawyers is that they have offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, which makes it easier to provide legal services to those with properties spread across the UAE.

Comprised of 3 of the top legal companies, Sughra Salem Bin Sarm Partners, Abd Alaziz Al Khemeiri Advocates, and RAALC Consultancy who came together in 2013. Property law is one of the firm’s areas of expertise and most cases they’ve handled over the years involve multinational construction companies and developers.
One advantage of this legal firm is that they usually dedicate a full team to your case, rather than just one lawyer. They’re also one of the easiest firms to get in touch with, offering a web chat service that allows you to chat with a legal assistant instantly, or in busy periods, you can schedule a call or request a call back through the same service.
RAALC has offices in Dubai, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah, although they are yet to expand their services to other countries, which is probably one of the only cons setting this firm aside from its competitors.
