Legislative Drafting

Legislative Drafting

Our Legislative Drafting Practice consists of attorneys who many times make contributions to the development and drafting of an enormous variety of legal guidelines and subsidiary legislation. In 2010, we recognized the growing significance of this specialist place of expertise and initiated a committed practice. We are a part of a handful of regulation companies that offer an abundance of expertise.

Our Legislative Drafting Practice consolidates FLF’s expertise in the areas of legislation development and drafting, public and administrative law, procurement, structuring and governance of private and public sector entities including federal and local Governments. We understand how this legislation must fit and integrate into an existing constitutional and legislative framework.

Our Expertise

We are regularly consulted by government entities in respect of the drafting of new laws or subsidiary legislation. This involves:

  • Carrying out a gap analysis to determine what is missing or could be improved in the existing legislation.
  • Performing a benchmarking exercise to see what is done in other countries, determining any relevant international obligations that will need to be met.
  • Consulting with all stakeholders to ensure that the full spectrum of concerns are understood and dealt with.
  • Advice on local legislation and policy issues
  • Legal studies on legislation
  • Drafting of new laws, regulations, rules, policies and resolutions
  • Amendments to existing laws, regulations, rules, policies and resolutions
  • Redrafting of bills which have been drafted in the English language to conform to the legislative structure in the relevant jurisdiction.
  • Given we are at the forefront of legislation and policy drafting, we have an unmatched understanding of the legal landscape and developments affecting the Middle East and our clients.
