Trade secret protection overview
United Arab Emirates | 19 April 2021

As the United Arab Emirates is a signatory to the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, trade secrets are protected in several ways. While there is no statutory definition of 'trade secrets', various federal laws protect confidential information. The Dubai International Financial Centre, a free zone which operates within the United Arab Emirates, recently enacted its own IP Law, which also provides protection for trade secrets.
