Compliance is becoming increasingly important across the Middle East and North Africa. Our Corporate Services team simplifies things, taking care of the legal and regulatory burden for clients.

Understanding the nuances of the legal landscape

Our clients choose Al Tamimi & Company because no one knows the nuances of the ten jurisdictions we operate in better than us.

We have long-standing good relationships with the governments and regulators across the region, which makes doing business easier for our clients. When regulations change, we are among the first to know.

Company secretarial support is becoming increasingly important, particularly in Dubai and Abu Dhabi where the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC) and Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) both reference company secretarial roles in their rule books.

We can help, no matter what stage you are at – from entering the market and setting up to ongoing administration. We can also help family businesses by providing additional support when they may not have their own in-house resources.

A unique practice

We are unique in the region, as our team is exclusively made up of lawyers. That legal training ensures we provide work of the highest standards.

The expertise of our team, many of whom are multi-lingual and have worked internationally, delivers best practice. Our fees are competitive and we work very closely with experts from around the firm to provide a full service for every client.
