Every realised goal begins with an aspiration, a dream and a vision!
In 1979, when I first began my legal practice it was my dream that I would have a legal practice in the UAE that would be different and unique. Different in its style, its approach and provide a unique service. My vision was that HL&A would offer outstanding personal and customer service to clients, and truly be partners in providing them solutions for their challenges. It is so important that our clients feel that they are being treated with care, offered quality advice and have reliable partners supporting them.
Since 1979, I have worked together with a great team of international and local lawyers to create a law firm with a difference. In 2011, I had the pleasure of meeting an inspirational lawyer, Dr Wulfing, who shared my vision and wanted to be part of creating a firm that would ultimately be the difference! Together we created Germela-Lootah the FIRST European and local firm that offers a full range legal and consultancy service to its clients. It’s truly unique in its offerings, its style of customer service/care and quality of work.
Germela-Lootah combines the highest standard of German efficiency and standard with renowned Arab Hospitality! This allows us to be the preferred choice for clients from all over the MENA and European region and create long term relationships with them supporting them to realise their dream.
Few things in my career have been as inspiring as witnessing how visionary ideas have turned into profitable businesses in Dubai.
When I was recently looking over the skyline of Dubai, it made me reminisce about the first time I had been to the city. The Burj Al-Khalifa was still under construction and the area around it was nothing but desert. How much the city has developed since then! Today there is no doubt that Dubai has elevated into the illustrious circle of the world´s leading trading hubs. With its convenient location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia and its elaborate infrastructure, Dubai is one of the most sought-after investment destinations on the globe. Its constant growth and outstanding political stability make the city an anchor for international development. Few things in my career have been as inspiring as witnessing how visionary ideas have turned into profitable businesses in Dubai.
Hence, I was instantly hooked by the idea of forming a legal consultancy with a local partner that combines world-class legal expertise with outstanding Emirati know-how. However, you need the luck and the opportunity to set your ideas into action. And my luck was to meet Mr. Hussain and Mr. Ahmed Lootah. I had the privilege of working together with them on a range of different legal matters. Our cooperation has always been characterized by utmost professionalism, meticulous work ethics and smart client-oriented solutions. But the most important thing is that we have developed a very close understanding of trust, respect and ultimately friendship.
Therefore, it was my pleasure to further deepen my cooperation with HL&A and form the joint venture GERMELA LOOTAH. It is the first joint venture between an Emirati and a European law firm, thus offering prospective clients the highest level of specialist expertise in both Europe and the GCC-region. Whilst other consultancies need to outsource certain legal services to Emirati partners due to the legislation in the UAE, we can offer an in-house and full-range legal service already. And this makes things faster, easier and more reliable for you.
