Charles Cuthbert is a senior partner with Everys and has been head of the Dubai office, where he is based, since 2010, specialising in Wills for British and other expats in the UAE. He is a qualified local legal consultant and is registered as a Wills draftsman at the Dubai International Financial Centre.
The common law system in Dubai allows testators to leave their estates outside of Sharia law. There are four types of Will available to non-muslims: a Guardianship Will; a Property Will; a Full Will; and a Free Zone Company Will. Charles has extensive experience advising clients on which type of Will is most appropriate for them. He provides pragmatic and comprehensive legal advice, ensuring that his clients’ assets are fully protected in the UAE.
