Bankruptcy Law

Bankruptcy Law

Bankruptcy Law in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a vital legal framework designed to address financial distress, insolvency, and the equitable resolution of financial obligations for individuals and businesses. The UAE Bankruptcy Law provides mechanisms for debt restructuring, reorganisation, and, when necessary, the liquidation of assets to settle outstanding debts. It plays a crucial role in balancing the interests of creditors and debtors while promoting economic sustainability and financial recovery. 

Bankruptcy Law issues include:

Debt Settlement and Restructuring:

UAE Bankruptcy Law offers provisions for debt settlement and restructuring, allowing debtors to negotiate with creditors to reorganize their financial affairs and fulfil obligations over a specified period.

Preventive Composition:

Debtors facing financial difficulties can seek a preventive composition, allowing them to propose an agreement with creditors to prevent the escalation of financial distress.

Financial Reorganisation:

The law allows for financial reorganisation, enabling debtors to present a plan for restructuring their financial affairs and meeting their obligations without resorting to liquidation.


In cases where financial recovery is not feasible, the UAE Bankruptcy Law outlines procedures for the orderly liquidation of assets to satisfy outstanding debts.

Creditor Rights and Protections:

The law establishes a framework for the protection of creditor rights, ensuring fair treatment and providing avenues for recourse in the event of insolvency.

Court Oversight:

Bankruptcy proceedings are subject to oversight by the competent courts, which play a crucial role in approving or rejecting proposed settlement plans, reorganisation schemes, or liquidation processes.
