Nissan wins legal dispute in Dubai

Nissan has won its long-running legal case against a former distribution partner, with the Dubai Court of Appeal ruling in its favor.

In a statement, Nissan said it welcomed the judgement of the Dubai Court of Appeal in its case against Al Dahana FZO.

The Appeals Court has overturned an earlier judgement fo the Dubai Court of First Instance and dismissed all of Al Dahana’s claims against Nissan.

Al Dahana FZCO had brought various claims against Nissan following the end of their joint venture business in the Middle East in 2019.

“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,” said Thierry Sabbagh, President of Nissan Saudi Arabia and Managing Director of Nissan Middle East FZE.

Nissan is the first Japanese carmaker to establish regional headquarters in the Middle East nearly 30 years ago.

In 2008, Nissan entered into an agreement with Al Dahana to form a joint-venture called NGF to manage the distribution of vehicles in part of the Middle East.

When the agreement ended in 2019, responsibility for these activities transferred to Nissan’s regional business unit in Dubai. Since then, Nissan has been in dispute with Al Dahana. ICA/Expat Media
