The Abu Dhabi Global Market Courts (ADGM Courts), the internationally recognised, independent courts of ADGM, launched a fully digital courtroom at the ADGM Building on Al Maryah Island on Sunday.

The digital courtroom, the first of its kind globally, is a testament to ADGM Courts' commitment to delivering an innovative and world-class dispute resolution jurisdiction that responds to the needs of businesses and investors.

The new courtroom is the latest initiative by ADGM Courts to establish a holistic digitised environment that distinguishes them as leaders in the delivery of judicial services. Just this year, ADGM Courts launched their eCourts online platform that has transformed the way civil and commercial courts interact with parties and their lawyers.

Together, the digital courtroom and eCourts platform have created a new standard of judicial and dispute-resolution services in the region and globally.

The ADGM digital courtroom allows efficient litigation and court proceedings in real-time, across different geographies and time zones. The advanced facilities of this courtroom offer an end-to-end solution for court cases, creating an optimal environment for paperless hearings.

Ahmed Al Sayegh, UAE Minister of State and chairman of ADGM, said: "We would like to thank Abu Dhabi's leadership, our partners in the Ministry of Justice and the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, for their support in our pursuit to raise the bar on dispute resolution service."
