The Middle East and China have enjoyed a long-standing relationship in recent times and business between the two has been steadily increasing over the years and will continue to do so as the Belt and Road initiative continues to stimulate activity.

Al Tamimi & Company has been assisting Chinese companies to do business in the Middle East for many years. Our expertise has ranged from establishing their presence in the region to supporting them when they have encountered difficulties, and in their day to day commercial dealings.

We have supported companies representing the construction, defence, automotive, financial services, engineering, bio-tech and technology sectors. Our clients include both Government and private sector entities and universities.

Our relationships with leading Chinese law firms whose clients are doing business in the Middle East are very strong. These law firms trust Al Tamimi & Company to provide their clients with the optimum service levels that they receive in China irrespective of where they have a legal requirement in the region.

With 17 offices in 9 countries across the Middle East we have insight into the opportunities that exist for Chinese companies, be this in partnership with local and international companies that we represent, or via Government organisations that are procuring for major development and infrastructure projects. We see our role as not only to assist our Chinese clients with their current legal requirements, but also to work with them to identify future needs based on their business growth objectives.
