The first Law Update of 2024 is here, and our first focus of the year spotlights Healthcare and Lifesciences, a sector that is undergoing significant growth and development across the MENA region.
Our focus provides an insight into some of the most important regulatory updates across the region, such as the UAE’s groundbreaking law on the use of human genome, Kuwait’s resolution on nuclear and radioactive materials, the new regulations for healthcare services in Qatar, Egypt’s healthcare regulatory framework, and the impact of the Saudi Civil Transactions Law on the healthcare and life sciences sector … and there is so much more!
Beyond the healthcare pages our lawyers share with you multi-sector insights where you will discover articles on Dubai’s DIFC regulatory framework for startups, Bahrain’s commercial agencies law, and we also shed light on Kuwaiti civil code and the advantages of setting up a joint stock company in Saudi Arabia.Read the full edition
With the 2011 IBA Conference in Dubai still fresh in our minds, we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended our IBA events for taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us and for your continued support of the firm.
We are very proud of the success of each event we hosted and are delighted with the turnout at our ‘Arabian Nights’ cocktail reception held on the lawns of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, in front of the picturesque Burj Al Arab. With over 900 guests in attendance, predominately from international firms, the reception was a resounding success and was an excellent opportunity for our lawyers to develop fruitful relationships with lawyers from a range of jurisdictions across the world. The event also doubled as an opportunity for us to officially launch our new logo and brand – we do hope you like it. We are pleased to include a collage of some of the photographs taken on the evening for you to enjoy.
We look forward to building upon our existing relationships, and getting to know those of you who we met for the first time over the coming months. We will of course be in Dublin for next year’s IBA conference and look forward to catching up with many of you there.
Wishing you all the very best for a happy, safe and successful 2012.
