Asset tracing and recovery across jurisdictions – India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)

The global nature of business and commerce has also paved a smoother track for acquiring and transferring assets across jurisdictions, resulting in India and the UAE becoming attractive destinations for investment. However, often, parties take steps to camouflage these transfers so that their assets are hard to trace and identify, creating challenges for creditors to proceed against the assets. While a common law jurisdiction like India has a wide variety of civil and criminal remedies for asset tracing, freezing and recovery for UAE based creditors, the unique legal system of the UAE can be challenging for Indian creditors to navigate. Remedies available before the common law courts of the Dubai International Financial Centre and the Abu Dhabi Global Market free zones vary from those offered by the civil law regimes of the seven emirates making up the UAE. That said, recently enacted legal frameworks for combating financial crime and seizing funds/assets are expected to streamline asset tracing and strengthen enforcement mechanisms in the UAE. In this context, a selected panel of Indian and UAE legal experts will examine, discuss and offer unique practical insights into the legal processes and challenges associated with enforcing legal decrees and orders for tracing and recovering assets between India and the UAE.
