Hi James, Deepa and Aqsa,

Congratulation on your growth and the consistently high service levels you have maintained over the 10-years we have worked together.

Your teams guidance in navigating the local UAE business conditions and differences against our existing countries of operation has been invaluable.  As we both have grown James Berry and Associates continues to feel like an extension of us, rather than an outsourced resource.

Deepa and Aqsa are awesome.

Thanks for your recent assistance.

Having been in the region since 1980 you learn to appreciate the importance having a good support structure to keep both you and your business up to date with all legal requirements and regulations attached to everyday life In 2003 I partnered with James Berry Associates in the set up of a branch of an Australian hotel apartments group who successfully opened a property in JLT dubai ,The assistance and support through all legal and banking issues were dealt with efficiently by JB and his professional staff. On a personal basis I have used JB for company formation which is up and running as well as domestic matters I would not hesitate to recommend JB associates as they have a team of professionals for all legal activities under one roof.
