DIFC and ADGM Setup Services

The Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is a self legislating international financial center, similar to the Dubai International Financial centre (DIFC) Dubai. Both these differ from other free zones in respect of self legislation. Both the DIFC and ADGM have three chief legislative/regulatory bodies: an independent financial services regulator, courts, and a registrar.

The process for registration in these two locations is therefore slightly different from the process in other free zone locations in the UAE. For entrepreneurs wishing to set up their business in either of the two centers, Morison Menon offers comprehensive assistance for all stages; whether it is complying with regulation, making representations to the courts, filing documentation or outsourcing the CO/CFO positions, or anything more.
