To anybody who considers the establishment of a company or residency in the UAE.
Many years back, in 2004, I decided to get closer to my business operation, which was located in Dubai/UAE. At the time there was not a lot of qualified support available locally when it came to "face to face" dealing with authorities. Yes, the internet plus some literature indicated requirements to some level and gave explanations of the various forms of legal entities such as FZE, LLC etc. But I felt left alone with all the paperwork, the dealings, and applications with UAE authorities. Government offices were very cooperative, however, laws and procedures quite new to me and not always comprehensible. So it was an interesting and at the same time very time-consuming challenge which I undertook as a new experience in my business life.
A business acquaintance of mine introduced me to Mrs. Christine Orth. When I started another company I called her and asked for help. I have been working in the service industry for 30 years and what Christine has demonstrated to me in terms of knowing every detail and local requirement, and how she is well prepared for any question or situation, has been extremely convincing to me.
When it came to putting things into reality, talking to authorities, getting things done, facing the constraints of a tight schedule, I was extremely impressed and totally satisfied with her way of working - forward thinking, always one step ahead, keeping me updated in a precise professional manner. I was never misled by vague speculations, instead, Christine made me fully aware of all implications and informed me about the slightest amendment of local regulations.
Her way of working, especially this kind of supportive assistance combined with her continuously updated knowledge, was just what I needed. I very much enjoyed the hassle free smooth realization of my business endeavors and can therefore clearly recommend Christine Orth and her company Global Office to anyone who does require similar services.
Christine has been professionally managing our property for short and long-term rentals in Dubai since 2006. She has assisted us with organizing all property related matters from cleaning service, finding a maintenance company to sourcing good tenants, and managing the paperwork as well as handling all property-related rental income on our behalf. Whatever issues there are to deal with, she gives prompt attention and also solves tenant issues in an amicable way. Global Office has also recommended the most efficient and cost effective structure for my company set up in the UAE for which Christine handled the entire paperwork from A-Z including corporate bank account opening and answered all my related questions in full detail. Global Office applies a diligent, fast and systematic work style with every task given and has excellent market knowledge.
I first went to Dubai for five days in December 2005 knowing that I wanted to live and work but not having a clue of what was needed. All I had was an introduction and a telephone number of Christine Orth from a lawyer friend of mine. Within two months she had organized a visa and a company with bank accounts, found a serviced apartment for six months starting from August 2006 when we needed it, arranged for interviews at various schools for my wife and simply took all the headaches away from us. When we arrived in August within days we had visas for my wife and children, driving licenses and introductions to various business contacts. Since then my son was taken ill and we had to spend some time in the UK. Without Christine I do not know what I would have done as she renewed all my visa’s, company documents, etc with me not always being able to be present. To summarize I have used Christine from the first day that I got to Dubai and will stay with her until I eventually leave. She is completely trustworthy, ethical and very competent. As well as this let us not forget that she is also a very nice person. This is a genuine testimonial and if anybody wants to contact me by email or telephone then please feel free to do so, Christine has all the details.
Christine, thank you so much for your professionalism; for so generously providing such simple but absolutely intricate information. Your comments are well noted. Again, thank you.

Mrs. Orth was instrumental in streamlining our office procedures and creating more efficient procedures for the Frankfurt office.

She also has excellent work ethic. Parker, Poe highly recommends Mrs. Orth.
I have been working with Christine on a professional basis since 2005. Christine has set up a number of companies and corporate bank accounts for clients of mine. Throughout the period of our relationship I can say that Christine has always acted with exceptional professionalism, diligence and expedition. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other clients and I give this testimonial without reservation.
I think extremely highly of Christine Orth, and therefore it is my great pleasure to write a letter of recommendation on her behalf. I have known Christine for more than ten years. She is a creative and original thinker. She has native intelligence, great curiosity about people and ideas, and plenty of common sense that she has applied to solving many problems at work. In addition, she has demonstrated excellent powers of observation, and an ability to communicate and suggest a change in effective but non-threatening ways to illustrate. Christine is very likable and ambitious person. I have no doubt that she will be a serious and enthusiastic Business partner.
Christine has been very professionally managing the setup of our branch office in Ajman Free Zone in 2015. She has assisted us with organizing all relevant documents and related matters. Whatever issues there were to deal with, she gave prompt attention and also solved all bureaucratic challenges in a very professional way. Christine handled everything from legal set up, document drafting including setting up the bank account with internet banking and getting residence visa for all our staff. Without her continuous support and valuable advice on local regulatory framework it would have taken us a lot longer to set up our branch in the UAE. I have no hesitation in recommending her to other clients and be happy to give further information upon request.
