Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial center in the capital of the UAE, is a free zone. The institution operates according to its corporate rules to ensure a conducive business environment. ADGM notably has its own courts, the ADGM Courts. The financial center says it will soon adopt the blockchain for its financial market courts. This presupposes safe and immutable judgments.

Abu Dhabi Global Marketplace: Safer Processes for Commercial Legal Cases

Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) is a resolutely digital financial centre. The institution is probably the first to have implemented a fully digital financial markets court. All services (archiving of files, case management, access to evidence, etc.) are available online. The courthouse even has digital courtrooms.

The implementation of the blockchain adds a layer of security to the ADGM courts process. The blockchain is in fact a decentralized and reliable distributed system that does not depend on a third party. The trust relationship between distributed nodes is established by mathematical methods and encryption technologies. ADGM takes advantage of this immutability. This promotes impartiality, transparency and justice, as well as providing easy access to a fair trial of commercial and financial disputes.

This pioneering Abu Dhabi global market initiative aims to drive lasting change for the trade justice sector. Blockchain facilitates and secures processes and ensures faster and more reliable execution of cases handled by financial markets courts, internationally.
