The Improving Case for Joint Ventures in the Middle East: A Look at Two Key Jurisdictions—the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates

With many businesses and investors seeking growth in emerging markets, the Middle East offers a compelling region of opportunity. Joint ventures offer an increasingly attractive structure to affect expansion or investment in Gulf Cooperation Council countries such as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Understanding recent developments is critical to assessing this opportunity from both a risk and a reward standpoint.

Please join Charles Hallab, chair of our Middle East practice and co-lead of our Joint Venture practice, and Tom Thraya, partner-in-charge of our Dubai office, for this informative and timely presentation.

Topics include:

  • New laws regarding the formation of LLCs and other entities
  • An update on local ownership and capital requirements
  • Restrictions on corporate governance, shareholder and other operational issues
  • Challenges with exiting a KSA or UAE joint venture
