Dubai courts to consider legal cases as Nakheel stands alone

The legal affairs department of the Dubai government has said Dubai Courts will hear cases involving Nakheel and its subsidiaries, following the separation of the developer from Dubai World on August 23, 2011, Gulf News has reported. "By virtue of the restructuring of Dubai World, which led to the separation of Nakheel and its subsidiaries, any cases involving Nakheel or any of its subsidiaries as a party will now come under the jurisdiction of the Dubai Courts or the alternative competent dispute resolution forum." The department said.
