Our team provides exceptional on-the-ground experience in key jurisdictions, advising clients that are entering, exiting, expanding and operating in or from the Middle East.
With decades of combined experience, our team’s deep personal and professional knowledge of the region, as well as its tried-and-tested network of trusted relationships, allow us to understand both the legal and the non-legal intricacies of doing business in the Middle East and to avoid the many pitfalls of operating there. Our fluent understanding of the issues and our ability to navigate them skillfully and pragmatically help to define our value proposition to clients and to maximize their chance for successful outcomes.
Our Middle East team represents a unique breadth and depth of experience across a broad spectrum of matters, industries and geographies. From modest start-ups to major multinationals, from princes to private equity funds, from local governments to global banks, we bring the breadth of our experience to bear on all client matters, whether emanating from or oriented towards the Middle East.
Our team members operate from a highly developed understanding of business objectives and commercial concerns. Our driving focus is on navigating the legal issues our clients face to achieve practical commercial solutions and successful business outcomes.
We maintain a determined emphasis on quality, consistent both with the preeminent reputation of our firm and with the high expectations of our clients. Our team prides itself on a level of reliability and responsiveness that is difficult to find elsewhere in the region.
By design, our team demonstrates fluency and facility with the laws, practices, norms and trends of both the Middle East and the West. Being legally, commercially and culturally ambidextrous is a hallmark of our practice, and we are as comfortable in London, Paris and New York as we are in Dubai, Doha and Riyadh. Our lawyers are fluent in Arabic, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
