Dubai Court throws out Al Dahana FZCO claim against Nissan Middle East

Nissan Middle East welcomes judgment that ends long-running legal dispute with former JV partner

The Dubai Court of Appeal has dismissed the claims of Nissan’s former joint-venture partner Al Dahana FZCO against the Japanese brand following the dissolving of Nissan Gulf FZCO in 2019.

The comprehensive judgement in favor of Nissan reverses an earlier ruling in favour of the Dubai-based automotive retailer and distributor of vehicles and spare parts made by the Dubai Court of the First Instance.

Nissan has welcomed the 8 June, 2022 judgement from the Dubai Court of Appeal ruling in its favour which effectively closes the long-running legal case brought by its former distribution partner.

“We welcome the judgement from the Dubai Court of Appeal, which means that Nissan has now been successful in defending a broad range of different claims from Al Dahana,” said Thierry Sabbagh, president, Nissan Saudi Arabia and managing director, Nissan Middle East FZE, in a statement.

“Throughout this period we have been confident that Nissan has acted properly and now we can move forwards with the support of our employees, customers and valued partners in the region.

“The Middle East has strategic importance for Nissan, where nearly 30 years ago we were the first Japanese carmaker to establish a regional headquarters. Having celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Nissan Patrol at Expo 2020 Dubai last December as the official automotive partner, we’re extremely proud of our heritage, and of the essential part that Dubai will continue to play in Nissan’s success.”
