Timothy Killen Successful in DIFC Court of Appeal

Date: January 19, 2022

On 26th December 2021, the DIFC Court of Appeal handed down judgment in Oman Insurance Company PSC v Globemed Gulf Healthcare Solutions LLC [2021] DIFC CA 009 allowing the appeal and granting permission to the appellant OIC to re-amend its defence and bring a counterclaim.

This Judgment provides guidance for DIFC Practitioners considering late applications to amend statements of case as well as insight into the DIFC Court’s approach to the complex jurisdictional question of whether the court of a place of a company’s incorporation should have exclusive jurisdiction.
