Over the past decade, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has witnessed a steady increase in strategic investment from Russia and other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). These investments have been directed towards several of our region’s most critical industry sectors, particularly energy, construction, technology, defence, and financial services.

Al Tamimi & Company is the region’s largest law firm and has over 30 years of experience. Our clients benefit from our extensive expertise, which combines a deep understanding of local law, the highest standards of service, a profound awareness of the corporate and cultural aspects prevailing in Russia and the CIS along with, of course, Russian language capability.

We also maintain strong relationships with leading law firms in Russia, ensuring that any of our regional clients who are investing or have plans to invest in Russia or in other CIS countries have access to the highest level of service, in line with the standards they expect.
