Speaker: Karim Salem (Senior Corporate Asssociate - Al Dahbashi Gray). Karim holds a Bachelor of Law from the Sorbonne, as well as an LLM from the American University in Cairo. Before joining ADG, he worked at a number of well-reputed law firms (including Baker & McKenzie) across Egypt, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar. He expertly negotiates, drafts and reviews all types of commercial agreements (including transactional, joint venture, license, shareholders, sale and purchase, and custodial agreements) and provides clear and concise advice on relevant UAE laws.

With over twelve years of legal experience, Karim works primarily in our corporate team. Karim has particular experience of high value mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, and of the hospitality industry.

Karim will discuss what a creditor should consider doing if a debtor refuses to pay the unpaid fees. It will discuss not only ways to avoid or limit bad debts, including the suspension or termination of the contract and damages, but also the proposed legal escalation procedure against the debtor.

Finally, if you are the debtor and owner of your business or one of its directors, Karim will discuss your legal responsibility.
