Based on the literature available on corporate governance (CG) and its impact on firm performance, there is a dearth of research in the Middle East. In UAE, CG rules were introduced in 2009 for implementation from 2010. The aim of the study was to understand the impact of CG components- ownership structure, leadership structure, board composition, board size, financial expert in audit committees on firm performance in terms of Tobin's Q, Return on Assets (ROA) and Return on Equity (ROE) keeping total assets as control variable were assessed using secondary data on firms listed in Abu Dhabi stock exchange (ADX) and Dubai Financial Market (DFM) for the period of 2008-2009 (pre-CG) and 2011-2012 (post-CG) periods. The data were analysed using statistical techniques. The results showed that implementation of good governance practices need not necessarily increase or improve firm performance in the short-term as other external economic factors may have a direct impact on corporate performance. This research has implications for the UAE firms looking to improve their performance.
