The evolving consumer goods sector has seen growth of FMCG companies and changes in market trends in the Middle East region over the years. This has led to the emergence of significant market players, both multinational and local, and resulted in heightened competition. This environment has made way for a variety of legal activity, particularly corporate restructuring, and the outlook remains encouraging as favourable market dynamics continue to persist.
Al Tamimi has seen this sector grow in the Middle East region to its current strength. We have been instructed by most major and intermediate players in this sector for a range of legal services, which we have effectively rendered by drawing on our expertise as a full service law firm. Being the only firm in the region to house a dedicated corporate structuring team, we have been the preferred law firm for various corporations who have relied on structuring and restructuring activities to enable them to, amongst other things, meet challenges of this changing sector, streamline businesses and remain competitive.
We have also been involved in joint ventures, IP, licensing and regulatory compliance work. Our strong understanding and years of experience of working and negotiating with regulatory bodies sets us apart from other regional law firms. We find ourselves at the fore of such activities due to a combination of factors – our market knowledge, critical mass and regional entrenchment.
