MENA & GCC Desk
Our coverage extends beyond the jurisdiction in which our offices are based into the wider Middle East, North African and Arab Gulf Cooperation Council region where we have progressively been developing activities and building reliable and long-lasting relationships through our MENA and GCC Desk and affiliated offices in Dubai and Doha.
Our lawyers combine the international expertise gained on high-profile, multi-jurisdictional transactions with deep local roots, the result of many years’ experience in the local markets where they operate. They have been providing advice and assistance to both international and Middle East clients with respect to business ventures on both the European and Arabic markets, in various industries such as technology and telecoms, media, leisure & hospitality, distribution, aviation, intellectual property, public & regulatory, project & corporate finance and construction.
We have extensive experience of acting for our clients in both contentious matters as well as transactional work. Our clients include private and public organisations from a range of sectors. We are continuously involved in significant litigation and arbitration as well as complex transactions, often set in a multi-jurisdictional context.
Over the years we have also built strong relationships with government agencies, regulatory bodies and local law firms across MENA and the GCC region. Thanks to this combination we are now recognised as the preferred legal adviser to some of the most successful organisations operating across these regions.
