Add to that the variety of cultures, languages and nationalities that a business person in Dubai will find themselves dealing with and it will quickly become clear that the scope for confusion is vast.
In any jurisdiction, where there is uncertainty as to the interpretation of a contract, the matter must be brought before a court, so that the judge can hear the evidence of the contracting parties and then give his interpretation of what the contract should mean.
