I established Fraser&Co. under the auspices of Abu Dhabi Global Market in 2018 to create an offering that is focused on the provision of international standard legal advice at a price that is affordable and within reach of any individual or entity. Harnessing the experience gained over thirty-five years of legal practice in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates, Fraser&Co. advises on a range of commercial matters, both contentious and non-contentious.

Welcome to Fraser&Co


Practice Areas

  • Contentious and non-contentious construction and engineering
  • Dispute resolution
  • Insurance
  • Company and commercial

We readily recognise that legal advice can be a reluctant purchase, often required in constrained circumstances where budgets are under pressure. Fraser&Co. aims to mitigate the effects of such circumstances and provide assistance in a cost-effective manner. We have jettisoned the impracticality and inefficiency fostered by a slavish tie to hourly rates in favour of a pricing policy that is truly transparent and tailored to the task in hand. There will be no surprises and, before any engagement commences, there will be clear agreement on pricing and exposure.

Fraser&Co. also recognises the need to resource work efficiently. You will have direct access to the lawyer(s) acting on your matter and the model embraces a lean and mean mentality to avoid duplication and over-staffing.

Although some matters inevitably require a substantial legal resource, we understand that smaller cases, albeit complex, cannot justify the legal costs generated by teams of partners and associates. The Fraser&Co. model is specifically aimed at providing input on such matters at a realistic price. Although we are currently acting on a range of substantial matters, we can also provide assistance on more routine issues, such as drafting correspondence and commercial documentation.

Preserving confidentiality, current mandates include:

  • Acting for the design consortia in arbitration in Thailand on disputes concerning the airport pavements at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok
  • Acting on a mediation for a US based consultant on a fee dispute on the Qiddiya development in Riyadh, KSA
  • Acting for a salvage contractor in arbitration in Hong Kong on a dispute concerning a salvage project in Iran
  • Advising on the uninsured element of a major fire claim in Dubai
  • Acting for a contractor in DIFC-LCIA arbitration proceedings in respect of extension of time and loss and expense claims on a DIFC project
  • Drafting appointment documentation for a Johannesburg based interior designer for hotel projects in Dubai
  • Acting for a contractor on an adjudication on a petrochemical project in Grangemouth, Scotland
  • Advising the lead consultant on the design and construction of Expo 2020
  • Acting for an investment adviser in ICC arbitration proceedings concerning the wrongful termination of a fund advisory agreement
  • Acting for a hospitality group on a range of commercial and contentious matters involving theme parks in Dubai
  • Advising the lead consultant on contentious and non-contentious matters on various Dubai World Trade Centre projects
  • Drafting commercial documentation for a media company in Dubai.

Our approach at the outset is to understand the issues involved in a matter to ensure that there is adequate legal recourse and that Fraser&Co. is able to provide the requisite input. That understanding can be established in an initial consultation before any cost is incurred. This also affords the opportunity to start to develop a rapport, which is crucial to the underpinning of any commercial relationship.
